A lot of times you can change the mouse settings in your control panel to swap the left and right buttons.

In control panel/mouse/buttons there is an option to switch left and right buttn functions.

Except for the fact that he will not have a 'right' working mouse button :p .

I call BS. The mouse won't fit in the laptop bag only if the the bag is perfectly wrapped around the laptop, which I seriously doubt. I have a laptop and I can honestly say that I can take a mouse with me and use it everywhere.

no its not the mouse fitting in the bag that is the prob, its just for my job i am on a lot of building sites with planning and design work,i move about on the site alot and i know it might sound strange but there really is not many suitable clean dry areas to set the laptop down most times i just have it in my hand with 2-3 other guys looking over my shoulder lol and you are right i would still need the right button i just thought one of the lesser used one like ctrl or del for eg. could be used.

Sorry about my ignorant answer as well. You should try as a user said, remap the right button to do the left click and use: SHIFT+F10 to right click.
