    Win 10 - Same login - different computers - different mouse settings

    Good afternoon,

    I have Windows 10 on two computer with the same login profile. On one computer, I have a left handed mouse on it with the buttons switched. On my laptop, it has a normal touch pad. The issue is that my left button on my Desktop is switched so it is back to the left because it is a left handed mouse and my laptop now for a left click is the right button. I do not want to make two profiles. Is there a way to fix it so I don't have to change it every time I use each computer?

    Hello Techne, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yes. You can switch the mouse button function in Control Panel -> Mouse Properties like below on each PC for what you wanted.

    Thank you for answering my question. I know I can do that but the problem is that once I do this it changes my other PC being that both are on the same login name. So my left handed mouse now switches to a right handed mouse. I go back and forth changing it each time I use each PC. So this works, and I am currently doing this but it isn't a good solution to the problem.

    Any other ideas? Thanks.
