2 mouse's (mice) for one computer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Dont guess i'm the only one in the world with this problem, but my 6
year old daughter is left handed. She'e figured out the mouse pretty
good, but is it possible to have 2 mice (right and left handed) on the
same computer. I would also like to get her a smaller kids mouse that
fits her hand better.

Thanks

    Well, try it and see. I have used a USB mouse and the regular touchpad
    "mouse" on a laptop with no problems. Both mice work, one at a time,
    with no problems.

    Good luck, jimbo

    I had six pointing devices on a computer at one time, all by different
    manufacturers, and some with pretty specific drivers, and they all worked.
    As long as I wasn't nudging one with my elbow accidentally ;-)

    You can have more than one mouse. You can have ome PX/2 type mouse with
    combination of one serial mouse and any number of USB based mice. However,
    you can only make "all" the mice right or left handed. It does not seem to
    allow you to tell which mouse is different.

    Also, you could make a separate acount where the mouse if left-handed and
    the other accounts as right-handed. (Not sure???)

    I have two mice (both Logitech) attached to this box - I could, if I so
    desired, use both simultaneously.

    I use two mice with no problems. Have you tried just changing the mouse
    properties to make you mouse a left hand mouse...?
