Photoshop switched menu flyouts from right to left

Photoshop CS5 has decided to suddenly switch all my menu flyouts from the right side of the menu (the one with the little arrow pointing right) to the left side. Can't figure out why.

Somebody suggested it might be windows 7's control of my Wacom tablet (Intuos 2) so I disabled windows control of that but to no effect.

Has anyone else come across this strange behaviour? More important, does anyone have a solution? I've searched Adobe online help without success (it's where I picked up the windows tip above).

I don't know about PS, but in most apps it has to do with how close they are to the edge of the screen.

Go to Control Panel>Tablet PC Settings and switch the menu display from right to left. For my system it's in the Other tab.

Re: Photoshop switched menu flyouts from right to

That worked! So even though I'm right-handed I have to set my tablet to think that I'm left-handed. Strange. I wonder if now the flyout menus in all my other apps will appear on the left side of the menus. Not a big problem, as the computer I had the problem with is my main production computer and photoshop is by far the most used and most complex program on it. I'll wear the others if I have to.

Thank you for responding.
