Ever wondered why cascading context menu's open on either the left or the right? Its because Windows thinks you are either left or right handed.
The trouble with this is if I have context menus set to cascade for right handed people, which I am, it just dosnt look right the menu's opening on the left!



To change this behavior isnt difficult at all and this tip works with Vista, windows 7 and Windows 8, I havnt tested it on XP.
In Vista and Windows 7 click on Start and then in the 'Search' box type or copy and paste this shell command: shell:::{80F3F1D5-FECA-45F3-BC32-752C152E456E} and press 'Enter'.



With Windows 8 type RUN on the Start screen and press Enter.



In the 'Run' box type or copy and paste the shell command shell:::{80F3F1D5-FECA-45F3-BC32-752C152E456E} and press 'Enter.



This will open the Tablet PC Settings window. It dosnt matter whether or not you have a Tablet PC the setting is the same.
Click on the 'Other' tab.
Now you can choose between Right and Left handed, Right handed means that the cascading menu will open on the left and Left handed will open them on the right.



Click on the radial of your choice and then on 'OK'.



Now you can enjoy your cascading context menus on which ever side you are comfortable with.
