    boot menu problems with mouse pointer


    I have a machine with three partitions of Win 10 Pro installed. When the menu comes up to choose which one, the mouse pointer is not displayed. If I move the mouse around I can eventually highlight a menu selection and boot into it. So the system is working, I just can't see what I'm doing. I can also use the arrow keys and Enter button.

    I noticed this problem some time back when installing Win 10 on two of the other partitions. While I still had Win 8.1 as the default boot and I could see the mouse pointer. Last night I changed the last partition to Win 10 and I now have this bug full on.

    My machine is fully updated to the latest normal stream of Win 10 Pro. Two of the partitions are 64 bit and one is 32 bit. I also modify the entry names on the boot menu as shown in this tut https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

    This is not a high impact bug. If I don't crack the problem here I may eventually take it to Microsoft.

    Any thoughts?

  2. Win 10 boot manager GUI menu, no mouse pointer

    I have a machine with three Windows 10 partitions. When I boot I get the boot manager menu but there is no mouse pointer displayed. If I wobble the mouse around it will eventually intersect a menu entry and highlight it. I can then click and boot that menu
    item. So I have a mouse pointer but it isn't displayed. I can also do a work around using the Tab and Arrow keys. No big problem just an inconvenience.

    Tonight I clean installed (booted from a USB) one of the partitions and I got my mouse pointer back. However, it only showed the pointer when the new system was the default boot. When I changed the default boot to either one of the other systems then I lost
    the mouse pointer. The other two systems were upgrade installs from Win 8.1.

    I have a laptop which was also upgraded from Win 8.1. I forced it to show a boot menu and it had no mouse pointer either.

    I'm not about to go and clean install the three systems that were upgraded. That would be an unnecessary pain. However, it would be nice to easily use the mouse again in the boot menu.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    thanks

    Bob

  3. Hand symbol mouse pointer is not working in Windows 10 Platform.

    When ever we hover a mouse over a menu, we used to get a Hand Symbol mouse pointer in IE 11 & Mozilla Firefox browser on Windows 8 platform. Where as now, in Windows 10 platform we are not getting the hand symbol mouse pointer in both IE11 (ver 11.7) & Mozilla
    Firefox.(Ver 48).

    Is Hand symbol mouse pointer is not supported in windows 10 Platform ? or do we need to update the drivers for mouse pointers ?

    Can some one please tell us how to enable the hand symbol mouse pointer in Windows 10 platform.
