Windows 7: New laptop, new wireless mouse, small gaming problem

New laptop, new wireless mouse, small gaming problem

As the title says, I'm on a brand new laptop (Yay Christmas) and I, just today, got a new HP wireless mouse. I've got it set up in the left hand configuration for Windows, but when I start up a game (Terraria, Minecraft, League of Legends, etc.) it switches to the right hand config. I've tried switching it back and forth, rebooting the mouse, etc., all to no avail. Any assistance would be amazing.

You may need to open the microsoft mouse thing in your start menu
untick the 'enable program-specific settings' box.

Then try running your games

The only mouse-like settings change I've found available is the assistance of the built-in mousepad program (Which let me switch it in the first place) and the windows-help thing that only lets me change the pointer size and color and enable the mouse keys thing. Anywhere specific I should be looking for that?

For some strange reason I thought you said you had a microsoft mouse. In the way of HP made ones I don't know what their control panel looks like so unfortunately I can't help there.

Why I will not buy another wireless mouse for gaming.
