    My custom mouse cursor only appears when I hover over a text box


    So I recently got a custom mouse cursor and I realized that it only appeared when the mouse was hovering over a text box and when it was hovering over my desktop for example it would revert back to the default cursor. Is there a way I can make it so it will always appear as the custom cursor?

    :)
     

  2. Cursor disappears while typing in text box

    *Original Title: cursor and text box issues

    After clicking in a text box, the cursor disappears if the mouse/cursor moves anywhere but in the same text box. I cannot click in the text box and write unless I make sure the mouse is held in the same box. Windows 10

    any suggestions?

  3. Question about hovering text.

    Is there a way to turn off the hovering text that appears when you leave your mouse cursor inactive over a file or folder? I have provided a screenshot of what I want to turn off if possible. The red arrow points to what I want to turn off.

    I know this is a helpful feature, but I hate when you want to read something above or below that hovering text and you can't because the text box is not transparent; and even if it were transparent, I still think one would have heck of a time reading through it - so I want to disable it if possible.

    Color Changes to mouse hover

    Hi Dick

    Tried the icon cache reset, it did reset, but so far I didn't detect any change.

    I looked at your step recording. What's interesting is that your taskbar does show a loudspeaker icon, apparently even when you're not hovering over it. Then when you click on it you get the vertical slider picture. I get that but by clicking on an empty box. For me, the same is true for the other missing icon - "new notifications"

    In your other picture of the mouse over the power icon, I get that just the same, but when I move the mouse down to the first option - Sleep - it is replaced by a black rectangle.

    I'll live with these for the time being.

    I will try MCBUILDER.exe and report the results later.

    .....then I'd have to consider the Spitfires.......

    Many thanks
    Don
