Is there a program which can revert the mouse pointer direction?

Is there a program which can revert the mouse pointer direction? So when the mouse is moved to the right the pointer goes to the left, when moving up the pointer goes down, etc.?

A quick googling gave https://superuser.com/questions/406502/ ... -win-7-x64 and, on that page, there is mentioned Polynomial's Mouse Inverter (requires NET 4.0) available for download at: https://m.sendspace.com/file/ZJUWFV.

I've not pursued it further: it might be what you want.

[Edit] I've had a chance to download and try it out and I'd say it works as required. It's a tiny program: 18.1 KB zip; 68.7 KB extracted.

Inverting works, but the pointer somehow wobbles, jerks.

I'm no computer expert -- I just have a hobbyist interest in computers and writing naive little programs in AutoIt -- but it occurs to me that the smooth inversion of mouse-movement might not be possible with a simple programmatic solution; a suitable mouse-driver, on the other hand, should do the trick.

On the page given by a link above, MAFMouse driver is referred to. It "requires Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 and can be installed on top of your mouse driver to manipulate mouse, touchpad, trackball or (new!) absolute touch screen or graphic tablet movements on the fly: you can optionally invert (reverse) the Y- or X-axis, or both, or rotate axes direction by 90, 180 or 270 degrees (free degree setting is planned)."

It is NOT free but one can download a "trial 32 bits x86 mouse version" with "x64, touch or other special [trial] versions available on request."

Thank you very much for the link.

Yes, a good idea. But I have had so many problems here with this Notebook, may be caused by drivers so I am very afraid of using such called "driver". The pointer of my mouse(s) sometimes reverts, do not know why, that's why I am looking for such an inverting program.

Have you tried it?

Thank you for the links. Untill just now I didn't try Sakasa, seems to be very old, but now I did, yes, just a click on the exe and the pointer is inverted, seems to work well, will try it next time more intensively when the pointer automatically inverts.

Many thanks again!
