    Is there a program that will put a red circle at my mouse pointer ?


    I know in the control panel I can activate the mouse option "Show location of pointer when I press CTRL..."

    But I want a big red arrow to appear, or red circle to appear at my mouse location.

    Is there a 3rd party app/program that will do that for me?
    (I am doing on-screen tutorials and this would be good to bring attention on screen to what I am talking about. Camtasia does this, but I just have OBS studio).


    Win10 v.1909

    edit: CursorFX comes close, but just not close enough.

  2. Spinning blue circle next to mouse pointer

    This is an incredibly frustrating issue. I do a lot of screen capture recordings and I can't have my mouse arrow popping up a blue circle every 4 to 5 seconds. I'm not sure exactly when this started for me, but now that I'm ready to do some more recording
    I'm noticing it constantly.

    Here's a solution I've found to at least stop the blue circle:

    • Start with the Microsoft suggestion of going to the mouse properties.
    • Click on the "Pointers" tab.
    • Select the "Working In Background" pointer and click on "Browse"
    • Select the first mouse arrow option (the one that looks like a normal mouse arrow)
    This doesn't get rid of whatever is causing the system to have to keep working in the background, but it will at least make the blue circle stop popping up.

  4. Is there a program that will put a red circle at my mouse pointer ?

    Mouse pointer constantly has a wait circle.

    Hello Denise,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    To resolve this issue we need some information. Let us know the following.


    • Which Office application do you face this issue with?

    • Do you have the issue with all Office application or one or two?

    Try opening one of your Office 2013 applications in the Safe Mode to check if an Add-In in the Office applications causes the issue.

    Open Excel 2013 in the Safe Mode and check if you still have the mouse pointer flashing issue.

    Follow the steps as suggested in the following Microsoft Article to open Excel 2013 applications in the Safe Mode:

    I get a "stopped working" error when I start Office applications on my PC

    Note: The above article lists steps for all Microsoft Office 2013 application/s, however, follow the steps to open the applications/programs in the Safe Mode for which you are experiencing the issue – in your case Excel 2013.
    You may also follow the same steps to open other Office 2013 applications in Safe Mode.

    Once Excel have been opened in the Safe Mode, check if the mouse pointer still flashes or stops flashing.

    Hope the above information helps.

    Thank you.
