    Thanks, Shawn. I had to set it to left-handed, even though I'm right-dominant. Weird. They open to the right now, though.

    What could have caused this? I've never had to change that setting before.

    You're most welcome. It may have been an update that reset it back to default.

    But isn't the default, to the right? That's how it always has been for me and I never changed that setting.

    I've seen it vary sometimes.
