I just got a two buttons mice today and I'm a left handed mice user.

 

I got no problem with the mighty mice, since I just use one button.

 

While I plugged into the two buttons mice, just realized I couldn't swap the left/right button. Can anyone help to swap the buttons?

 

 

Thanks,

Michael

If you have a Mighty Mouse, you can make the right side of the button Primary click and the left side of the button secondary click. I remember that OSX has the advantage over OS9 that it a two button mouse doesn't require a driver, but it seems that Apple gives you no way to swap the buttons of 3ed party mice. You could try installing any drivers that came with the mouse, I think some MS mice come with some Mac drivers.

Have a look at the documentation that came with the mouse, they often come with a driver or something that allows you to change the orientation of the mouse.

There is an option in the mouse preferenes to reverse the primary and secondary click.

You needn't have baught yourself the mouse, there is a preference pane in the keyboard and mouse prefs which allows you to change the primary button to the right.

It worked for me. Although I am using a ms mouse I didn't need to install any drivers for that pane to appear. Do you have a older OSX or something?
