    How to Change Cursor Size for Console Window in Windows


    A console (or "terminal) is an application that provides I/O to character-mode applications.

    For example: Linux

    This tutorial will show you how to change the cursor size in a console window (ex: command prompt, PowerShell, Linux) for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    *note The cursor shape you set for a console window will only be applied to the specific console window shortcut that opened it.

    For example, command prompt opened via Win+X menu VS Run (Win+R) dialog. Each location would have its own settings.



    EXAMPLE: Available cursor sizes in a console window

    Here's How:

    1. Open a Linux console window you want to change the default cursor size of.

    *note You could also just directly right click on the console window shortcut or file, click/tap on Properties, and go to step 3 below.

    2. Right click or press and hold on the title bar of the console window, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    Window Size for GPU-Z

    I don't know if anyone has suggested this before, but it would be rather convenient to add adjusting the size of the GPU-Z window. It would be especially convenient for viewing the whole sensors tab and taking screenshots of it.
