How to Swap Action of Left & Right Mouse Buttons on macOS Big Sur [Walkthrough]

Most mice have two main buttons: the primary button and the secondary button. The primary button is usually on the left side of the mouse, but some users prefer to swap them if they are left-handed or have a different preference. Here’s how to do that on your Mac.

Most lefties have adapted to the righty-centric world of computing, but this isn’t necessary on a Mac. The Apple Magic Mouse, Apple wireless mouse, wired mouse, trackpad, and even most 3rd party mice have a symmetrical shape, so those that are left handed just need to adjust a few settings in macOS Big Sur to get the mouse on their dominant side.

First, open System Preferences by clicking on the Apple logo on the menu bar then selecting “System Preferences.”

Do you need to swap your mouse buttons on Mac? Maybe you’re left-handed and want the primary as the right button or maybe you simply prefer to use the opposite for comfort.

Depending on the version of macOS you’re running and perhaps even the type of mouse you’re using, it may not be an obvious change. This tutorial shows you how to change mouse buttons on your Mac.

This tutorial will apply for MacBook Pro, Air, Mini’s running the macOS operating system. This tutorial was performed on a macOS Big Sur system.
