    Mouse pointer on external monitor is different than the mouse pointer on the laptop screen


    Every few days the mouse pointer on my Samsung SynchMaster S20B350H changes to what looks like an ancient scroll. I have to shut down and startup again for the pointer to revert to the Windows system default. The pointer on the laptop screen remains the same. I tried updating the mouse driver but the system says the latest driver is installed. Could it be an issue with the monitor itself? My laptop is a HP Probook 6475b - Windows 10 with all the latest updates. I scan my laptop regularly with Malwarebytes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Mouse Pointer

    Hi,

    You can customize your mouse in a variety of ways in Windows. To change how your mouse pointer looks, you can follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu, then click Control Panel.
    • Select Mouse, then go to the Pointers tab.
    • Select the pointer you prefer from the drop-down list, click
      Apply > OK.

    If you want to use a pointer that is not on the list, you can download it online. After that, go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers tab again, then click
    Browse.

    Update us if it addressed your issue.

    The Mouse Pointer (THE OLD ONE?)

    Hi Amir,

    Are you using an external mouse or the touch pad mouse? You can change the way how your mouse pointer looks by following these steps:

    1. Press Windows key on your keyboard, type Change your mouse settings and select the search result.
    2. On the window that would appear, click Additional mouse options.
    3. On the Pointers tab, under Scheme, click
      Windows Default (system scheme)
      on the drop-down menu.

    Let me know if there are improvements.

    Upgraded to Windows 10, from Windows7 Home. Have had no real issues except I want to change the mouse pointer. I make the changes, then apply it, the mouse pointer remains changed for a minute, then reverts to the previous mouse pointer I had when making
    the upgrade to Window 10.

    Any suggestions?
