If you often lose your Windows 10 pointer in your super-size high-resolution display, there is a simple way to locate the pointer quickly. Let’s explore how to turn it on and add visibility to the pointer.
This is for devices running Windows 10
First, open the Start menu and type “mouse” (without the quotes) in the Cortana search box. Next, click the Mouse settings shortcut that appears in upper left-hand corner. Refer to below image:
Now, in Mouse settings, locate the Related settings section and click the Additional mouse options link. See below image:
Next, when the Mouse Properties window opens, click the Pointer Options tab and checkmark the option Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key. See following image:
Now, select the Pointers tab. Depending on your display scheme, for example, if you use Dark Mode, you may want to use a white pointer, conversely, for a white or light background, a black cursor is your best option. Now, click OK. Refer to below image:
Your Mouse Properties window will close. Next, exit Settings.
Your pointer will change to your selection. Also, anytime you press the Ctrl key, an animated shrinking circle will appear around the cursor to locate it. See below image:
