    Swap Mouse Buttons (XP Pro, SP 1)

    I recently went from Win 98SE to XP Pro. My mouse sits on my left and I have it configured so that the right button is the primary...after I log in. Is there a way to set this up on the initial login screen also? I've noticed the same problem in a game, Ghost Recon, I play. The mouse buttons are reversed on the menus where they weren't when it ran under Win 98. I wonder if the two problems are somehow associated?

    Thanks.

    Re: Swap Mouse Buttons (XP Pro, SP 1)

    Just to answer my own question, I found out that I needed to set the value HKU.DEFAULTControl PanelmouseSwapMouseButtons from 0 to 1 in the registry. That took care of it for the Welcome screen and I assume any new user that I create will have the buttons swapped also.
