Re: Hi there!

I've never really had to use a mouse with either hand...sometimes I do it when I'm holding something important in my right hand and I have to tilt my chair so that my left hand can reach the mouse.

I'm not left-handed, but I can safely say that I can efficiently use my left-hand for a variety of different things. smile

I also know a lot of people who are left-handed...most of my friends are left-handed.

Re: Hi there!

When I say I'm left-handed, I mean I mostly use my left hand. I actually only use my right hand to hold a knife when I'm eating and holding a mouse... then again, I'm using a laptop so it dosen't matter lol

Re: Hi there!

If you don't want to be just right-handed, try practising with your left hand. Then you can write with both hands... it's called Omnidextris or something like that.

Also, 'tis 'environment', rather than the other spelling you used.

Re: Hi there!

I'm confused about that as well. Devantè's probably making a reference to something that someone said in another thread that only he remembers. tongue

Back on topic, I'm left-handed for most things but use the mouse with my right. Not sure why. roll


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: Hi there!

I read some scientists say humans use their right hand always to hold a mouse, left-handed or not. They didn't say why, though.
