Subject:   Razer Deathadder Left Hand clicking problems
I have always been a lefty and thought to finally invest in a left handed gaming mouse, so i bought this one. However, although being a lefty, i still use the standard left click as the left click and not the right click.

When i downloaded the drivers i switched the buttons so that its how i have always used a mouse, left being left and right being right, but this is where the problem is.

If i change to this, when i try to left click it will not open certain things like folders in my PC, also if i try to put my cursor between letters in a word, it will just highlight the entire word. If i put it back to left being right and right being left, it all works fine. Anybody have the same issue? I'm guessing its going to be hard to get help since there's not many lefties out there.

I have tried re installing the drivers but its no use. Any help would be awesome, thanks.

This might just be a problem have with mouse drivers. I'm a lefty that uses the standard left/right click setup too and I encounter similar problems. With the drivers installed and the button switched to a right-hand setup, I encounter frequent dead-clicking, where I can't seem to click on anything. However, if I uninstall the Deathadder driver the default mouse settings kicks-in and the mouse works fine, so I don't think it's a problem with the mouse. It most likely a software problem.

what kind of setup are you running? Maybe we can find a correlation.

I'm running this set up:

Windows 7 x64
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T
4 x 2GB DDR3 1600
2 x Crucial M4 SSD (RAID 0)
2 x Radeon HD 6870 (Crossfire)
MSI 890FXA-GD70 Motherboard
