Left-Handed Mouse

left handed mouse

There is something about this time of year for solving old problems!

 Last week I just suddenly swung into action buying something I should have bought years ago?  I am a lefty and recently been getting a little sore in my left wrist (by recently I mean over the last 5 years!) so I looked into trying an ergonomic left-handed mouse.   I watched a few YouTube videos and Amazon reviews and now have a Perixx Permice-719L left-handed mouse. Wow!   I know this might seem a boring looking mouse at first but there is nothing boring about pain going away – does it feel good!  OK right handers might be yawing but we lefts really appreciate manufacturers that thing about us, this 30% of the population.  Thank you Perixx Computer GmbH from Dussoldorf Germany!

BTW this is not a gaming mouse (Razer and Logitech have this covered for lefties but they are very expensive and for a different purpose), this is a wireless mouse for general PC such as Excel work and I am just amazed how good it feels and is and for such a reasonable price – only $27 on Amazon!  It worked straight away and all I did was change the Primary mouse button from Left to Right in settings (Bluetooth & devices > Mouse in Win 11).  Now I am so used to using a a right handed mouse, I still want right click to be the context menu and left click to be the enter.

The thing is can I help you with annoying stuff you have put up with for ages with some Excel automation work?  Maybe there is some tedious task that a macro can eliminate for you or you need some easier data updating with Power Query.

So did you know 13 August International Lefthanders Day, first observed in 1976.  Check out this Parade.com post from last year’s day.  Good company there – Jimmi Hendrix, Steve Jobs, Mahatma Gandhi, Admiral Lord Nelson, Winston Churchill, Bill Gates to name a few!
