As the start center is about selection and not about management, i believe they
would say that it shouldnt behave like a file manager. Different users will
prefer the single or double click preference on their DE and in their file
manager, but the start center isnt a file manager.

A user can change to single click execution on windows if they like.

If there is a UI option that is negatively affected by the single click
activation, please let me know, as i dont see it. We dont have mult-selection
or drag and drop for reorganization, so there isnt any other option that comes
to mind that warrants a double click activation.

Checked MSO's start center and it activates recent documents and templates with
single click.
