I have an Apple magic mouse with my iMac, running OSx 10.6.8.
About a month ago I suffered a hand injury and so decided to switch my primary and secondary buttons on my mouse. I'm ready to start using my hand again, but now for some reason I cannot seem to find the option in Preferences/Mouse to change the buttons back (see attached screenshot).

All I have are the Tracking, Scrolling and Double-click options (see attached screenshot) and there is no sign of the option to switch prim. and sec. buttons again.

I uninstalled a graphics tablet I had, I turned the mouse off and on again, I restarted the computer, I googled for answers but no luck.

Any advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
