  1. Freezing mouse pointer


    My Microsoft Precision Mouse pointer freezes from time to time when I have not used it for a shorter or longer time.


    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers.


    If I pull out the transceiver and plug it in again, it usually unfreezes the mouse, but if not, and I move the mouse, it takes a few minutes before it unfreezes.


    This happened after a relatively recent update of the Windows software, possibly with the upgrade to 20H2.


    Should I just ditch the mouse and buy a Logitech or is there anything constructive that can be done?


    Thanks,


    Hans L

  2. Mouse Pointer

    Hi,

    You can customize your mouse in a variety of ways in Windows. To change how your mouse pointer looks, you can follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu, then click Control Panel.
    • Select Mouse, then go to the Pointers tab.
    • Select the pointer you prefer from the drop-down list, click
      Apply > OK.

    If you want to use a pointer that is not on the list, you can download it online. After that, go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers tab again, then click
    Browse.

    Update us if it addressed your issue.
