    Mouse cursor gets pixelated and may vanish, upon changing pointer size


    I use multiple monitors and needed to increase the size of the mouse pointer to better find the whereabouts of the mouse. Recently, I keep observing my mouse pointer getting pixelated across all its possible modes: be it a pointer, a capital-I shaped thing when I am in a text field, or a sandglass icon when it is waiting on something.) More recently, the mouse pointer will vanish completely should I stop moving the mouse (using a Thinkpad Trackpoint keyboard with its "red dot").

    Both the problems will be "resolved", temporarily, should I change the size of the pointer via the ms-settings:easeofaccess-MousePointer setting page: I will get a sharp-looking pointer that does not vanish. I will upload a screenshot of the pixelated pointer should I observe it again. For now, a temporary solution is to change the pointer size when things go wrong manually.

    My windows version is 2004, Build 19041.329. The problem, as I may recall vaguely, can be specific to this Windows version. I have also tried to re-install the driver for my graphic cards (I have two cards, GTX 970 and 1050, for 6 external monitors), which did not help.

    PS: many thanks to Shawn Brink who posted the List of Shortcuts to Directly Open Pages in Settings in Windows 10. I can quickly go and change the size of the mouse pointer with one command Mouse cursor gets pixelated and may vanish, upon changing pointer size :)

    :)

    Hi,

    • Type Control Panel in the Search bar, and select
      Control Panel.
    • Go to Ease of Access.
    • Select Ease of Access Center.
    • Choose Make the mouse easier to use.
    • Under Mouse pointers, select Regular White or
      Regular Black or Regular Inverting to set it to the smallest size.
    • Hit the Apply button, then click OK.


    If the first method won’t work, try these steps:

      Control Panel.
    • Type Mouse in the Search bar on the upper-right corner of the Control Panel window.
    • Select Mouse.
