If all your layers are of the same size as the sequence double click will select the topmost layer and you can't select the layers beneath it unless you use the timeline and effect controls as I mention before, but if your layers are smaller in size you can single click using the mouse directly on any layer after double-clicking the first time.

Do you mean you are trying to select a clip in the program monitor and it selects the one that is on top?

If so: select the clip in the timeline, then in the "Effect Controls" panel press on the word "Motion"

Thank you, Ali.

Yes but is there faster? because I have long timeline and it take long time to do these steps for every clip.
