I think I'm not the only lefty with a laptop so please fellow lefty coders how have you solved this problem: when I use a mouse I do what most lefties do and swap the mouse buttons so my primary button is on the right. On my laptop and on most laptops I've seen in recent years, the touchpad is in the middle and the primary button is to the left where my 'good' hand is, so I don't have a need to swap buttons.

The biggest problem is when I RDP into my desktop where the mouse buttons are swapped because I use a mouse on the desktop. I have to 'un-swap' the buttons only to be annoyed the next time I go to my desktop and have to swap them again. I think I found the shortest key combination in Windows to swap mouse buttons (try: Winkey+I, 'm', 'o', down arrow, enter, 'r' or 'l') but it is still annoying.

Apart from enduring, do you have other solutions?

Thanks
