Most people around the world are sufficient with their righty’ but occasionally you’ll run into a technology geek that refuses to conform. Do you have any friends who are left-handed? If you do it might be handy to know how to set up the computer for them incase they need to use it.
Click the Start menu orb and Type mouse into the search box. Next Click the program link titled Change mouse settings.
At the top of the buttons tab Check the box labeled Switch primary and secondary mouse buttons.
The moment you check the box, the mouse will be switched. Right-click will now function as left-click, and vice versa. So, to exit this menu and Click OK you will actually need to do a Right-Click; of course for a lefty, a right-click is normal…
Now all that is left to do is change the position of the mouse in relation to the keyboard. For a lefty, you guessed it, the mouse should be to the left of the keyboard.
Now you are ready to invite all of your left-handed friends to come over to
mooch share your awesome computer. When you are ready to go back to the right-handed style, just uncheck the mouse settings box from Step 2.
Great tip however as I understand it, left handers don’t use Windows any longer (only MAC’s).
More Photoshop articles please ;)
I’m on that!
Thanks for the tip though frankly as a serious and ageing leftie computer user I have never been troubled by the mouse settings. All I need is the mouse on the left side of the keyboard and away we go!
