|Reverse the Mouse Buttons (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Hardware > Mice and Keyboards
By default the left mouse button is the primary mouse button and the right is the secondary. This tweak lets you swap those buttons around to make the right the primary, which may be useful for left handed users.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new String value, or modify the existing value called 'SwapMouseButtons' using the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
|(Default)||REG_SZ||(value not set)|
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]|
Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value: (0 for normal, 1 = swap buttons)
