Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Jen M
Hi, you are watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to switch primary and secondary buttons on your mouse on Windows 7 computers.
Start off by accessing the 'Control Panel'
To do so, we need to press the 'Start Menu' button in the lower left corner of the screen.
Click on 'Control Panel'
Once the 'Control Panel' window opens, we need to go to 'Hardware and Sound', click it once
We will be brought to a new section.
In this section, we need to locate 'Mouse' under 'Devices and Printers'
Click it once. A new window will open.
In this window, we will be in the 'Buttons' tab
By default, the primary button is the left button, and the secondary is the right button on your mouse.
We can switch this by clicking on the 'Switch primary and secondary button' checkbox
This means that in order to click 'OK', 'Apply', 'Cancel' or do anything at all, we need to right click instead of left clicking on the mouse.
Once we're ready, we can right click on 'OK'
We can close the 'Control Panel' window by right clicking on the 'X' sign
This concludes our tutorial on how to switch primary and secondary buttons on the mouse on Windows 7 computers
