I have two win 11 comps, one a laptop and the other a desktop. Recently I swapped the mouse left and right buttons on my desktop mouse. But this setting then transferred to my laptop! I changed the laptop back to left click on left button but when I went back to the desktop, it had switched back to mimic the laptop!

Somebody decided that there could only be one mouse setting per MS account!

Weird and a damn nuisance.
