Quickly Swap Mouse Buttons from Left to Right

Not all people are born with their right hands being the dominant one. In fact, 10 percent of the world’s total population is left handed. Nevertheless, left-handed people are not inferior to the right-handers.

Actually, some of the most famous, powerful, and captivating personalities in our history are left-handed. These include Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Leonardo Da Vinci, Ludwig von Beethoven, Queen Victoria, Fidel Castro, Mahatma Gandhi, Pablo Picasso, and Barack Obama.

However, our present society sometimes singles out left-handers. For instance, our computers mouse is, by default, applied for right-handed people. Left-handed computer users find it very difficult to operate a mouse.

The Dmouse program is an application that can quickly and easily change the mouse buttons from left to right (and vice-versa). If you’re left-handed and you are using a shared computer in your house, school, or at work, this software is great for you.

Dmouse is visibly placed on the computer’s system traybar so you can swap buttons in a snap. It is a free tool and can be downloaded at http://www.swapmousebuttons.com.

  1. Thanks for writing about my software. =)


  2. Then, there are those of us strange right-handed people who use the right mouse button like left-handed people, anyway. :-)
