How To Setup Mouse Left Hand Friendly In Windows 8.1

In Windows, the mouse is configured for right-handed users by default. It can be frustrating for left-handed users. However, Windows allows you to easily change the configuration of your mouse to use for left-hand users as well. If you are a Windows 8.1 left hand user and do not know how to make your mouse left hand friendly (switch left/right mouse buttons), here is how it is.


Configuring mouse for left-handed users is quite simple. You can do this from mouse settings menu. Just follow as described below.

1. On Windows 8.1 desktop right click the start button and select “Control panel”. Then click “Mouse”. It will open mouse properties window.


2. In mouse properties window, under “Buttons” tab, check the box “switch primary and secondary buttons”. Then click on OK button to confirm changes (now you need to right click on OK button).


Alternate Way:

a) From Windows 8.1 Start Screen, type mouse and click “mouse and touchpad settings”.


b) Under “choose your primary button”, select “right” and close the settings window.


Please note that once you enable the option for switching mouse buttons, you need to use opposite buttons or best use mouse in left hand for more natural left and right clicking of mouse on Windows. To revert back to original right handed mouse settings, just uncheck the option as seen above.

Note: In case of multiple users on same PC with different left and right-handed use – one has to change this setting every-time as per specific user preference.
