Question from Ethan: Hi, Rick. I recently bought my first Windows computer after using nothing but Macs for years.
I’m left-handed and I’ve found using the left and right mouse buttons to be very awkward.
Someone told me that you can switch the functions of the mouse buttons in Windows so left-handed people can click the primary button with their index fingers.
Can you tell me how to do that?You sure can reverse the functions of the mouse buttons in Windows 10, Ethan. IN fact, I know several
Just follow the steps below:
1 – Press the Windows+S key combination to open a search box.
2 – Type the word mouse settings into the search box, then select Mouse settings from the list of search results.
3 – Click Additional mouse options.
4 – Check the box beside Switch primary and secondary buttons.
5 – Click Apply and then click OK.
That’s all there is to switching the functions of the left and right mouse buttons in Windows 10, Ethan. Good luck!
