    Switching WinX Menu with Start Screen?


    As you guys know Windows 8's "Start Menu" button is changed to go to "Start Screen", and right clicking the button goes to the WinX menu. Just a simple question, is it possible to make left click goes to WinX menu, and right click goes to Start Screen? Just a reverse version of what is existing.

    Without swapping mouse buttons across the entire system, I don't think so, at least not without some considerable effort. Some advanced mouse software may enable you to assign a button to do so though.
