New directions in metaphor

New, at least, to me: “Can I double-click on that later?”

Meaning, “Can I go into detail about that later?” “Can I wait to explain that?”

StackExchange has someone asking about this metaphor in 2015. I doubt that it’s caught on. Has anyone else heard it?

I have a possible answer to “Can I double-click on that later?” “Yes! Keep scrolling!”
