    Set Left Button as Primary


    In the Win10 task bar on the left edge is the windows symbol which currently responds to a rightmouse button click. Can I change it to respond to a left button click instead ?Settings show Right-handed (left Primary Click ) radio button is set.What do you suggest ?Bob

    Hello @srfpala,

    You could change the mouse primary button to be the right button instead of left to reverse this, but it will also reverse it for everything else.

    In addition, you could press the Win+X keys to open the Quick Link menu.

    By default, left button click on the Start Menu icon should bring up the Start Menu. Right button click should bring up the Start Menu shortcuts list (I guess you would call it), same as pressing Windows key + X.

    What happens when you left click on the Start menu icon now?
    What happens when you right click?
    What do you want to work differently.

    What happens when you left click on the Start menu icon now? Nothing!
    What happens when you right click? A pop up menu appears
    What do you want to work differently. When I left click, I want the pop up menu to appear.
    TIA for help

    Have you tested to see if using Option 1 in the tutorial below to change the mouse primary button to right will work for you?
