This tip can be amusing for lefties as it will tell you where to get the cursor/pointer and how to change mouse settings.

You can download pointers for lefties from Microsoft.

Now in the C: Windows Cursors folder, create a new folder named LeftHanded.

Decide which cursor size you want to use and download six left-hand pointer files then corresponding to this size.

a. Aero_arrow_left.cur
b. Aero_busy_left.cur
c. Aero_helpsel_left.cur
d. Aero_link_left.cur
e. Aero_pen_left.cur
f. Aero_working_left.cur

Now, open Mouse Properties via Control Panel and select the Pointers tab. In the Scheme list box, choose “Windows Aero (large) (scheme)” if it’s not already selected. Click Save with a name and name the new project ” LeftHanded “. Click OK.
