  1. My mouse pointer stops every 1/2 seconds


    Hello, sine last July after I decided to reinstall Win10 on my laptop (Dell Inspiron15 3000) the mouse pointer started to stop every 1/ seconds.


    I tried to update drivers, use dell update but nothing seems to work.


    It happen both when I use the touch pad and/or the a wireless device but not when i make multiple file selection using the touchscreen.


    I also checked the task manager, and all the values seems to be in as always. The only thing I notices is that when i move the mouse the System application use more CPU power.


    If someone knows how to solve it, please help me, it is really annoying and time consuming.

    :)

  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.

    Mouse Pointer Sticking


    Every 5/10 minutes, my mouse pointer keeps sticking, for around 1 second, then jumps to where it should have been. It's almost as if the pointer isn't actually sticking but the screen isn't updating. This started happening after upgrading to Windows 10.

    Any suggestions?

  4. My mouse pointer stops every 1/2 seconds

    Spinning blue circle next to mouse pointer

    This is an incredibly frustrating issue. I do a lot of screen capture recordings and I can't have my mouse arrow popping up a blue circle every 4 to 5 seconds. I'm not sure exactly when this started for me, but now that I'm ready to do some more recording
    I'm noticing it constantly.

    Here's a solution I've found to at least stop the blue circle:

    • Start with the Microsoft suggestion of going to the mouse properties.
    • Click on the "Pointers" tab.
    • Select the "Working In Background" pointer and click on "Browse"
    • Select the first mouse arrow option (the one that looks like a normal mouse arrow)
    This doesn't get rid of whatever is causing the system to have to keep working in the background, but it will at least make the blue circle stop popping up.
