  1. Preventing an unwanted change in the mouse cursor


    One of my programs in x32Win10ProV20H2 has the hotkey CTRL SHFT which turns the mouse cursor into a text-capture tool. I find that conversion happening frequently without me applying the hotkey. How might this be caused ? - or more importantly, how can it be prevented ? The USB connected mouse is a Microsoft one and has a scroll wheel. Keyboard is a USB connected HP. It might be relevant to mention that from time to time, the INSERT mode gets inexplicably changed to OVERWRITE.

    :)

    Preventing an unwanted change in the mouse cursor

    No mouse cursor

    Hi,

    It is possible that the system did not recognize the mouse of your computer after it booted up. This can be the reason why you do not see the mouse cursor. Kindly perform a power cycle to refresh the power of the computer. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Shutdown the computer.
    • After shutting it down, remove the battery (if you're using a laptop) and disconnect the computer from the charger.
    • Wait for 1 minute.
    • After 1 minute, attach the battery and turn on the computer.
    • Check if you will see the mouse cursor.

    Let us know how it goes.
