How to Change Primary Mouse Button in Windows 10?

By default, the left button is the primary button and the right button is the secondary button of your mouse in Windows 10.

If you wish, you can change the primary mouse button (which changes secondary too). And remember that this change will affect the touchpad too.

Let’s get started.


Open Mouse Properties.

In the Button configuration section, you can see the Switch primary and secondary buttons option. Select it.
