I have recently bought Windows 8 PC. There is a strange issue that I am facing.

Whenever I right click the context menu is displayed on the bottom-left side.

Even the menu in programs like IrfanView get displayed on bottom-left side.

But in case of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox it is displayed on the bottom-right side as usual.

I can't find any setting for this one. How can this behavior be changed?


You just have the wrong handedness in your Windows configuration.

Execute explorer shell:::{80F3F1D5-FECA-45F3-BC32-752C152E456E} from the run dialog (Win + R), go to "Other" tab and change the handedness.

I have already accepted the answer but if you want to go via the GUI route then search for "tablet" in Charms and in "Settings" go to "Tablet PC Settings".

In the "Other" tab select "Left Handed" for "Handedness".
