To implement changes in the mouse buttons in windows from Left to right, you can try so that your mouse device can work with either the left or right hand. All you have to do is configure your mouse device. 

Aside from setting the device to work on either hands, you can also switch mouse buttons, from left to right, using only a couple of simple steps.
