    You can change the cursor direction by getting a new cursor file pointing in the other direction

    As far as the scrollbar, there must be some way of doing it by default (over-riding all website settings).

      Have any idea where? I will be googling it in a few but just thought I'd ask and have it as a reference for other users.

      edit: no luck, there are listings but the downloads do not work.

        to use a mice that have "Scroll wheel" feature. for the pointer, you can choose the "hand", not the "arrow"

          Jelsoft should put a gel mousepad in their fan shop.

            Agree Those are really nice and may help one.

            I tried to use my left hand to navigate at vb.org but I didn't get it
            That's the end of that!

                That's what I've found, too. Also checking the checkboxes on web forms is still hard along with selecting text.

                I'm on my 10th day and I've gotten pretty good at everything except for those two things I've mentioned above.

                  I am still looking for a left-hand pointer. It seems Micorosft was really biased towards right hands, because even in that hand scheme the hand is a right hand lol...no left hands to be seen.

                    It's better to adjust your chair and your desk than to change your mouse (keybord), the gell pad is something good but not so efficient.

                    About the left handed software configuration, i've seen arabic sites where the default position for scroll bars is on the left (they read from right to left). It was very strange for me.
                    And one advice, it's really easyer to have wireless mouse if you want to use it with both hands

                            I'm a lefty, however, even though I write with my left hand, I've got no control whatsoever when it comes to using the mouse with it.

                                I was born left handed, but when I started school in 1974 I was forced to use my right-hand to conform. Now after many years of training, I am pretty Ambidextrous. Can do everything with my left hand except the writing isn't as clear as with my right. Not that my writing is very clear to begin with.
