Chapter 13. Customizing Windows XP > Customizing the Mouse

Customizing the Mouse

Most PC mouse devices have at least two buttons: a left button and a right button. These buttons are used for different purposes. The left mouse button is used for most tasks: clicking, dragging, opening menus, selecting commands, selecting text, and so on. The right mouse button is used for less-common tasks. A common use of the right mouse button is to display a shortcut menu.

tip

The following steps assume that you are using the Category View of the Control Panel options. You can also choose Classic View. Use this if you have upgraded and are more comfortable with the Classic View. Otherwise, you may select this option if you are having trouble finding the Control Panel icon you want to use.
