    Mouse pointer periodically disappears and becomes unresponsive


    This issue started happening in the past week or so.


    During times when I leave my desktop computer unattended but turned on, the mouse pointer will both disappear and become unresponsive. This happens a few times within a 24 hour period.


    I have several different mice. I've tried a wired mouse, a wireless USB mouse and a wireless Bluetooth mouse and this happens with any and all of them. I have also tried uninstalling rolling back, and updating the mouse drivers and this has not resolved the issue.


    When this happens, I turn on Mouse Keys, save my work, and then reboot which temporarily resolves the issue.


    I've also noticed that if I use remote desktop to connect to this computer, navigation with the mouse from the remote machine works fine.

    :)

    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.
