I can't figure out how to switch my mouse to be left-handed. I hurt my right shoulder and really need to use my left hand. I have tried several times in Settings but it doesn't seem to "take."

Thanks,

Mike

Thank you replying firenice03. I have three listings under the drop down: Logitech "M525," "K330" and "M215 and Gen." I have a Logitech M 525 mouse/keyboard combo. I'm not sure why the other two listings are there, but I did try setting them as well, but got the same result.

It's fixed. I don't know if they fixed it or if I did something different, but I now have a left-handed mouse.
