You can configure this by opening up the run dialog (ALT+F2) and typing in

There seems to be no gui option in the Openbox configuration but you can open
up the configuration file ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml and try to delete the
following lines under the <context name="Desktop"> paragraph:
<mousebind button="Up" action="Click">
<mousebind button="Down" action="Click">
After saving and a relogon it should be gone.

Just create a text file and right click on it go to properties and set the
right programm to 'open with'.
Hope this helps
