    Pointer dissapearing

    I've been looking around the forums for a while but I can't seem to find the solution to my problem. The pointer on my laptop keeps dissapearing but only after I've used the touchscreen. It worked fine before, I was able to move from touching the screen
    to actually seeing and thus being able to navigate with my mouse, but for some reason it's decided to act up. I've tried the fn + f7 trick and it doesnt do anything for me.

    Pointers

    Points are simply a value (address) that "points" to a value. It has no extra information about what it is pointing to (hence the danger). When using arrays/indexers, the operating system knows this is a collection that is this long and is of this type. Any operation that steps outside of those constraints is caught and handled. On the other hand, if a pointer so much as points to the wrong address, all the values will subsequently be wrong.

    Pointers are faster but more risky.

    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.
