    Stop the synchronization of mouse buttons between devices


    Hi,

    As left hander when I use a desktop I use the right mouse button as my primary button.

    When using a laptop it's easier for me to keep the track pad buttons set with the left button as my primary button (it's nearest my dominant thumb!)

    This hasn't been a problem until I got a win 8 laptop when it started to synchronize the settings on my latop to desktop and vice versa. This is a good thing in normal circumstances but for me it's a pain as I have to keep changing the setting depending on what machine I'm using.

    Is it possible to disable the mouse synchronization whilst retaining the synchronization of other settings?
