My friend has a Mac mouse on a windows.

When he clicks the mouse, its a right-click because the settings are reversed.

Is there a console command to switch it back? Seeing as he can't fix it with his current mouse, because he can't click the appropriate elements in the GUI.

Can't he use the keyboard to get to the location in Control Panel to change the settings?

For what it's worth, you type control mouse from the command line to get into the right place, but you can get there using the Start Menu (Ctrl + Esc) and navigating with the keyboard.

he can only right click, so it wont work. –  Joseph Nov 10 '10 at 5:39
I didn't suggest anything about the mouse. I can navigate quite comfortably with the arrows, the tab key, the space bar and the Enter key. –  user3463 Nov 10 '10 at 5:45

Keyboard way of switching mouse buttons on Windows Vista (perhaps 7) and above:

  1. Windows Key
  2. type "mouse"
  3. Spacebar
  4. Enter
