How to Change Context Menu Position from Left to Right in Windows Vista and Later?
I have received many emails from people regarding menu position issue in Windows Vista and later. In previous Windows versions, context menus used to appear at right-side of the mouse cursor but in Windows Vista, 7 and later, menus appear at left side of the cursor.
It doesn't happen for everyone but majority of people is facing this issue even I have faced it in my Windows.
So here I'm posting a small tutorial for how to change menus position in Windows Vista and later. Actually its not a bug or problem, you can set the menu position according to your requirements.
So if you want to change or customize context menu position, just follow these simple steps:
1. Open Control Panel and double-click on "Tablet PC Settings". If you can't see the item in Control Panel, run following command in RUN dialog box and press Enter:
It'll directly open Tablet PC Settings window.
2. It'll open a new window containing following options:
Change where menus appear on the screen by indicating which hand you write with.
- Right-handed (Menus appear to the left of your hand.)
- Left-handed (Menus appear to the right of your hand.)
As mentioned in the screenshot, if the "Right-handed" option is selected, the menus appear to the left and if the "Left-handed" option is selected, the menus appear to the right of your hand. So select the correct option.
3. That's it. Apply the changes and your problem will be solved.
