I wanted to play Pirates under DOS back then, but it didn't have the left-handed mouse button switch like Windows.

So I opened the mouse, scratched the PCB button lines away, soldered wires cross-over, and had a left-handed mouse also under DOS.

    You could also turn the mouse around and learn how to click with the palm of your hands and how to move the mouse with inverted axis.

    Excellent !

    Also solves that modern issue of Windows OS left handed setting only applying after you login..

    I guess ideally mice should have physical switches so you can choose.

    I had a customer on the phone doing that once, took me quite a few minutes to understand why their mouse seemed to be acting up !

    @Nanos I wonder if they complain about their shoes being uncomfortable, only to find out they were wearing them backwards.

    I had a daughter like that.. (Not biologically related.)

    Always had to check her shoes was on the correct feet before leaving the house.

    I wonder if she ever grew out of it ?
