  1. Left handed mouse and Right handed touchpad


    Hi

    I have a dell laptop with Windows 10.


    I use my mouse left handed and my touchpad right handed.


    In previous versions of Windows I could set the mouse and touchpad individually, in Windows 10 I don't seem to be able to.


    How do I set a mouse Left handed and Touchpad right handed?


    thanks

    jon

  2. Left handed mouse when docked and right handed touchpad when undocked

    Hi,

    I realize that you want the left handed mouse when docked and right handed touchpad when undocked. I will try to help you with this issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    You can configure the mouse settings for left hand and set the touchpad for normal use.

    Follow these steps to configure the mouse settings:


    • Press Windows key + I to get the Settings screen.

    • Click on Devices and then click on Mouse and Touchpad.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.

  3. Left handed mouse when docked and right handed touchpad when undocked

    Is there a way in Windows 10 to have two mice one being configured for left hand and the other for right hand? When I'm in the dock, I use a left handed mouse. When I am on the go, I use the touchpad and prefer it configured normal. As it is now, when
    I undock, I need to change my mouse setting manually and then when I dock again, I need to set it manually back to left hand.

    Left handed & Right handed mouse users

    Hi Regile,

    Yes, the option Switch primary and secondary buttons change every time, and that's the problem it should not, it should keep the settings on the computer unless otherwise requested by the user to do so. I explain myself

    I have 5 PC, I use two of them with the left-handed, and 3 with the right-handed. So when I switch from a right-handed to a right-handed that works, but not when I switch from a left to right or a right to left "handed", because then this switch the option
    mouse settings that I want on this PC ( and was previously set) with the option that I have last used on another PC that was set on the opposite position.

    To me, the user should have the option to disable this refreshing mouse setting (only for the Mouse) at boot up and keep the local settings that were set on this PC. Or something else.

    Same apply I have a sixth PC, with a touchscreen monitor, I would like (when I boot the PC) use it with the right-handed mouse, but if I had to use a left-handed PC before, then it overrides the right-handed mouse settings with the left-handed mouse.

    Thanks

    Eric
