The mouse that is used in the computer is one of the most important parts of the computer. There are many people who will be able to work without the mouse, but almost 90 to 95% of the population will need the mouse to work on the computer. The use of the mouse makes it very easy for you to be able to navigate through the various programs and files on the computer.
In a normal mouse, there are usually three buttons. There is one for a right click and there is one for the left click. The middle one is not commonly used by regular computer users. Each of these buttons on the mouse may have varied functions. Most of the mouse that is available in the computer shops are those that are set for the right handed persons. For those who are left handed, this can cause major problems. There is a method of making your mouse to be correct for the left hander and the method is as follows:
- The first step in the process is to enter the control panel of the computer. This section of the operation of the computer has the settings that have been pre set and configured for the use of a right handed person. This is also the place where you will have to change the settings to make it right for the left handed person. You can enter the control panel by clicking on the start menu of the computer. The control panel icon is to the right side of the column that appears when you click on start.
- Once you have entered the control panel of the computer, the next step is to click on the mouse option that is present in the control panel. You will have to double click on the ‘mouse’ option for the next step.
- Once you have double clicked on the option that says ‘mouse’, you will have a pop up screen that has a tab on it that says ‘change the primary and secondary buttons’ of the mouse’. This is the tab that you will have to click next. Once you click on this tab, the actual primary function of the mouse will become the secondary and vice versa. This reverses the normal function of the mouse and the right click becomes the left click and vice versa. This is the final step in the process of making the mouse to function and be compatible for the person who is left handed.
This is one of the important changes that should be done in the settings of the computer when you are left handed. There are many people who suffer a lot because they do not know the method of changing the function of the mouse and they go through a lot of stress just to try and work with the existing settings. You can change the settings very easily as explained here to make the functions of the mouse be reversed and make it to be easy to use for a left handed person.
