  1. My cursor keeps disappearing

    So I use a custom cursor on my laptop but every time I use my touchscreen it disappears. I'm able to use it but I just can't see it. The only way I know how to fix it is to go back to my mouse settings and change it back to the custom. I've been looking up how to fix the problem but when I get answers it comes up with things that I'm unable to do in settings because it isn't there.

    My cursor keeps disappearing to the upper left hand corner of the screen even while typing. It gets worse as the day progresses. Its making my computer impossible to use. I tried the suggested troubleshooting and reinstalling device drivers. Didn't work.

    If this issue appears on your laptop, you need to check if your device is enabled. To do that, follow these steps:

    Go to Control Panel > Mouse.

    Navigate to the last tab on the right and make sure that the device is enabled.

    After doing that, your mouse will reappear and everything will start working again. Keep in mind that you might have to perform these steps using your keyboard.

    Disappearing cursor

    Searched MS support for advise on how to deal with disappearing cursor problem. Suggestions fell into two categories, 1) useless for my purposes or 2) so technical it was beyond my understanding. In any event, one suggestion on how to correct the problem
    was a system reset, which I performed. Now there are entire folders and files that I have either lost or can't access.
