I think my mouse is double clicking - how can I test it?

I have a Logitech G700s which I bought on here nearly 4 years ago and I'm pretty certain that it's started double clicking when I'm only clicking once. I first noticed it at the weekend when I was editing some photos in lightroom and when I clicked a slider it reset it back to zero which normally requires a double-click. I've just noticed it again doing an online grocery order where I'm clicking an item once and ending up with multiples in the basket

Is there a definitive way of testing this?

Cheers

Watch something on youtube or netflix whilst clicking once every second on a file or folder. If it opens it's double clicking.

Simplest way to a definitive answer is to invert the functionality of left and right mouse button in software.

If it stops happening the left mouse button is f***ed.

I'm pretty sure nothing but madness could come from inverting the left and right clicks.

Just for testing purposes, not for real use of course

There are various pieces of software for windows and linux, can't recall one off the top of my head, that will allow a user to capture mouse events. You could use one of these as a tool to detect how many click you are receiving.

Edit: I had one sitting my desktop
GlovePIE, I use it to provide mouse look in old FPS. Not the best as it doesn't allow you to watch the actual events but you can hack it:
Create a new script and paste the following in the window. Open a text editor of your choice. Click run in GlovePIE then change focus to the text editor (I tested it with Notepad++) and start clicking your mouse. you should see the letters "l", "m" and "R" appear after each click. Once done don't forget to stop GlovePIE.

Code:
Key.L = Mouse.LeftButton
Key.M = Mouse.MiddleButton
Key.R = Mouse.RightButton
