I've been wondering, is there a way to "mirror" the right hand default cursor and make it a left hand cursor?

Thanks,
Allen

If I understand the question correctly I would say you can do that by going start>ctrl panel>mouse and check the box
to reverse the action.

I am not sure I understand the question, but if you mean can you make it so the mouse can be setup to be used left handed then yes, most mouses let you customize what each button does. Just go into mouse properties, set the action for the right click button to be "left click" and set the the left click button to "right click".

Not necessarily. By default the arrow on the cursor points left; I was wondering if you could get it to point right.

Ok, that was what I thought you might mean too but the other one seemed more likely, lol. Yes, you can do that too if you have a cursor editing program. You just open that cursor image in one of those programs and choose mirror, or flip, or whatever else will get you the desired look
