  1. Pointer freeze after update (?)


    Since downloading Windows newest version 1903, I now am stuck with a frequently occurring pointer freeze. Despite uninstalling/reinstalling numerous pertinent drivers, the problem continues. Is Microsoft working on a fix? We need one ASAP. This is as frustrating as the last "glitch" which affected the nightlight functioning---this was another gratis gift from MS after an update.

    :)

    pointer keeps on freezing hellllp and typing is slooooooowwww

    Hi Alan,

    We need to ask you few questions so we can help you with your concern:

    • When you say that your pointer keeps on freezing, did you mean the mouse pointer or the cursor when you are typing?
    • When did this issue started to happen?
    • Are you using a certain program when this issue occurs?
    • Have you changed any settings on your computer prior to this?
    • Have you installed any programs that may caused this issue?
    • What other troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We will be waiting for your response.

  3. 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.

    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.
