I think it's a fundamental screw-up to make someone use the keyboard

comes to the same issue. And I mean that in regards to either swapping

The scroll bars are generally on the right of the screen, and the menus
are generally on the left. LIkewise with commonly used buttons at the

menus being right justified in a big window.
