Make Mouse Button Change Stick?

Is there any way to make the alternate mouse button choice permanent? I switch back and forth due to fatigue, but when I set it up for the left-handed option, I have to do it every time I boot up. Is this just another example of the bias against left-handed people? (Yes, I'm one of them).

Hi,
lol no it shouldn't be bias
What type/ brand mouse ?
Some like mine came with software for it and additional features but I still make sure the regular mouse settings in control panel are set right too.

In addition to ThrashZones solution about the mouse coming with software, it's possible you need to read the instructions that came with your Logitech mouse. I assume that's what you are using as your System Specs mention a Logitech Wireless mouse.

I bought a new Logitech Trackball M570 mouse some months ago, but no software came with it, so I needed to read the instructions that came with & it listed the Logitech website that I needed to go to to download the software for it. If you do end up going that way make sure you select the right version for your computer, that is, either the 32 bit or the 64 bit.

Once you install the software you should be able to customise your mouse.

Changing the settings in Logitech did the trick. Previously I was only changing them in Windows.
