switching mouse for lefthand use

  [DELETED] 21:44 15 Aug 2003

I used to be able to switch the mouse over to lefthand and back by just clicking/unclicking in a box. Since I reinstalled Windows xp pro and microsoft mouse, I have to change each button separately. This is a problem as my wife and I frequently use the computer and have to keep switching. Anyone know where I can get the other program?

I don't use XP but I suspect that if you set up your PC for two users it may remember your different preferences for the mouse. Certainly worth a try. Also lots of other good reasons to have separate settings. You can change menus as you like, and your wife will still see the menus she is used to.

On XP if I go to the control panel and the mouse option then I get the setting "switch primary and secondary button" which would do what I think you want.

You could always teach teh wife (or yourself?) to use the mouse properly ;) (and yes I am left handed!)
