    cursor dissappeared

    Thank you both for your prompt replies, I tried all steps listed, some I had tries previously but I still tried them again, but still no cursor.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Is there a key to delete character ahead of the cursor?

    Hello Stephen,

    As of the moment, deleting the characters next to the cursor is unavailable. You can only delete characters by moving the cursor to the right side. You can always send a suggestion via Feedback Hub app so that it can be added or included on the next update.

    To send a feedback on your phone, you can follow the steps below:

    • Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app.
    • Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    • Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      add
      button (+).
    • Select Suggestion and fill up the box with the details of the feature you want to be added on Windows phone.
    • Select the right category for the suggestion and then submit.

    Should you need more help, feel free to ask the Community.

    my cursor does not work!

    Hi,

    The driver for the device may be outdated or corrupted, resulting to this problem. Let's look into some things to have a better idea about what could be causing this problem. Please answer the questions below:

    • Have you checked for any available updates for your drivers?
    • Do you get any errors when the cursor stops to function?

    See if the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter in Control Panel will be able to find any issues. Follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Type Troubleshooting then press Enter.
    • On the left panel, click on View all.
    • Choose Hardware and Devices and allow the troubleshooter to run.

    You can also manually check for updates for your mouse. Here's how:

    • Right-click on the Windows icon on your home screen.
    • Open Device Manager.
    • Expand Mice and other pointing devices.
    • Right-click on the device that shows under the list of mice and pointing devices.
    • Choose Properties.
    • Go to the Driver tab.
    • Select Update Driver....
    • Click OK once it's done.

    Let us know if the suggestions above fix the issue with your cursor.

    We're here if you need additional help.
