    modified cursor width in non-Microsoft apps


    Modified the cursor width in settings to be more visible, but it doesn't affect the cursors in non-Microsoft apps. Is there anything can done to make the selection universal?

    :)

    Thank you, Syed.

    I have 'at last' found an easier way?

    Open >1: Settings>2: ease of access>3: other options, then, 4: change the width of cursor and pointer. Ye, haay!

  4. modified cursor width in non-Microsoft apps

    My scroll bar is nearly the width of a hair. Help.

    Hi Kate Lacy,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand your inconvenience. We will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I suggest you to follow the method provided below and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Registry editor.

    Disclaimer: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the
    article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/

    After taking the back from the registry, follow the steps provided below.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows logo key + R key.
    • Type regedit and press Enter.
    • If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.
    • Now, navigate to the following location in Windows Registry.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

    • In the right side panel of WindowsMetrics, double-click ‘ScrollWidth
    • In the value data field of the window, enter a data value. The default value for scroll width is the -225. Entering 500 will double the width, which should be fine in my opinion. But you can enter any value up to 1500. You could say, enter 1400 to
      make it even bigger. Remember, more or higher the value, the wider is the scrollbar.
    • After changing the value, restart the computer and check if it helps.


    Hope this information helps. If you have any further queries related to Windows, let us know.
    We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.
