  1. Mouse Cursor changes to excel cross when on second screen


    Hi,


    One of our users has reported a strange bug, and has us stumped.


    When his mouse is on his 3rd screen (laptop and two screens, using dell dock), it changes from the regular cursor to the excel cross, as if there is a spreadsheet open there.


    The first thing I suggested was restart, so he did, and the mouse still changes.


    The second thing i checked was to see if his graphics/dock drivers are up to date - they are.


    I then spent some time searching online for this issue, and found nothing similar. There are a few where the mouse changes to weird shapes, which was solved by adding mouse trails and changing trail length to the smallest. On this laptop it simply trails the excel mouse..


    I look forward to replies, and suggestions,


    Thanks,

    Callum

    :)
