Make your mouse pointers left-hard friendly

  1. 1. It’s easy toswitch yourmouse toleft-handedmode. Enter “mouse” inyour Startmenusearch, andselect thefirst entry.
  2. 2. Check the“Switch primaryand secondarybuttons” box tomake your mousemore left-handfriendly. Nowyour primaryselect button isyour right button,and thesecondary button(commonlyreferred to asright-click) is theleft button.
  3. 3.  But, it can still be awkward to select items on screen with your left hand using the default cursors. MSDN has a free set of cursors designed for left-handed users, that can fix this problem for you. These cursors are exactly like the default Aero cursors in Windows 7 and Vista, except they are reversed to make them better for left- handed use. The cursors are available in 3 sizes: normal, large, and extra large. The normal ones are the same size as the default ones in Windows 7; feel free to choose the other sizes if you prefer them. Click each link to download all 6 cursors for your size (link below).
  4. 4.  Click “I Agree” after selecting the cursors to accept the license agreement and download them.
  5. 5.  Once you have all 6 cursors downloaded, select the Pointers tab in the Mouse Properties dialog. Click the cursor to change, and then click Browse to select the new cursor.
  6. 6. Browse to the folder you downloaded yournew cursors to, select the correct cursor, andclick Open.
  7. 7.  Do this for each of the 6 cursors to be changed. Strangely, the Busy cursor (the spinning blue orb) is a static cursor, so you may not wish to change it. All the other ones look and act like their standard counterparts. Here’s the cursors to be changed, and their equivalents in the default cursors: Normal Select: aero_arrow_left.cur Help Select: aero_helpsel_left.cur Working in Background: aero_working_left.ani Busy: aero_busy_left.cur Handwriting: aero_pen_left.cur Link Select: aero_link_left.cur After changing all the cursors, click Save As… to save this mouse scheme so you can easily select it in the future. Finally click Ok to close the Mouse Properties dialog and accept the changes.
