I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps.
1. Go to "Control Panel"
2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware"
3. Click "Mouse"
4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

How do I highlight words to copy and paste them


Well, to highlight words you have some choices. Using the mouse is likely the easiest. If you double-click any word it will automatically highlight. If you triple-click it will highlight the entire sentence.

Alternatively, you can drag to highlight. Consider the following:

The cat climbs up the tree.

If you place the cursor (mouse) at the first capital T and then click and drag to the . at the end it will highlight. You can get specific this way.

The following is dependent on what application you are using. If you are using a Word Processor (like MS Word, Libre Writer, or Notepad) you can actually highlight with your arrow keys and shift.

If you take the previous example and were writing in Word, you could use your arrow keys to go to the "cat" portion and then hold down "Shift" - while holding down shift, use your arrow keys to begin highlighting letter by letter.

Give it a shot!

You can then "copy" by using the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + C" or by "right-clicking" and selecting copy. Lastly, you can press the key on your keyboard that looks like a menu. It is between the ALT and CTRL keys on the right hand side. That is the "Context Menu" button which is the same as "right-clicking".

To paste, the options are similar. You have to click on where you want to paste and then use one of the following:

"Ctrl + V" to paste
"Shift + Insert" to paste
or "right-click" then paste (Or press that context menu key on your keyboard and select paste with your mouse.)

Hope that helps!

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys


Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

How can i unlock my keyboard


Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.


Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.


Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.


Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.


Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.


If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.


Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.


Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.


hope this helps

Space key doesn't work well


I would power off the computer and continously hit the space key for a few minutes. It might have a liquid spill such as a soda pop under it and causing it to stick. If that doesn't solve the problem you might need a new keyboard or go inside the laptop and remove the keyboard cable and plug it back in to reseat it. Sometimes that helps. Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

I right clicked on the desktop and it doesn't show the properties


Try activating the context menu with the keyboard using the Menu Key.
In computing, the Menu key or Application key is a key found on Microsoft Windows-oriented computer keyboards. It is typically found on the right side of the keyboard between the right Control key and Windows key (or between the right control key and right Alt key).
The key's primary function is to launch a context menu with the keyboard rather than with the usual right-mouse button. The key's symbol is a small icon depicting a cursor hovering above a menu. This key was created at the same time as the Windows key. The Menu key can be used when the right-mouse button is not present on a mouse.

Hope this Helps

Right click doesn't work


Right click opens a context menu. That can be stopped by Group Policies from a work computer or any business computer. I cant remember how to resolve the issue, but look up explorer context menu registry keys and a solution should be out there. Explore is basically windows!

Everytime i click on something my computer opens up a menu how do i get it to stop?


It's possible that your mouse has been configured so that the LEFT mouse button is performing the action that the RIGHT mouse button does on most computers, namely to open the "context-menu".

Access "Control Panel", and then "Mouse", and check the actions that are associated with each click.

I have a MX 3200 wireless keyboard and mouse. the


The problem was that ther keyboard was encrypted for my protection. this sometimes prevents the keyboard from connecting to the receiver and therefore the computer. to stop encrypton: press the left CRTL + left ALT + F12 key at the same time. Press the connect button on the receiver (you only have a few seconds to then press the connect button on the keyboard. Press the ESC key. Now you must start the encrypton again. Install SetPoint software from www.logitech.com/downloads. after you save and run the program, then press left CTRL + left ALT + F12 keys. sometimes there is an encrytpion wizard that pops up to help you further encrypt the keyboard, but this does not always pop up. It didn't on mine. My keyboard just started working right after i re-sarted the encryption.

hope this helps others that were in my situation.
