    Problems with mouse pointer scheme


    I recently upgraded to windows 10 which went well except my pointer "hid" behind popups.
    Everything worked, if my pointer went over a selection it would highlight the selection and I could select with no problem, I just couldn't see my pointer. I was using a custom pointer scheme so I thought it might be that.
    Today I reinstalled the same pointer scheme but it didn't show the same on screen but it was infront of the popups.
    After about 30min it reverted back to looking like it used to but it reverted to hiding behind popups again.
    I installed a new pointer scheme which worked and didn't hide but after 30 min it reverted back to the old scheme and hid again.
    I know this sounds petty but it is frustrating.
    Any suggestions?

    :)
     

  2. How to Download Additional Microsoft Windows 10 Mouse Pointers

    Hi Eric,

    If you find your mouse pointer to be too small for you, we can make the mouse pointer bigger by changing it in the Ease of Access.

    You can adjust the pointer size by going to Settings >
    Ease of Access
    > Mouse > Pointer size.

    We would also like to know if you have tried changing the mouse scheme to Windows Standard (extra large) (system scheme) when you went to the Mouse Properties under Control Panel?

    Looking forward to your reply.

  3. My mouse pointer is a pixelated square on Windows 10 startup screen

    I have similar problem. I have Surface Pro 4, Windows 10 and a Acer large screen. Mouse intermittently changes to a multi colored square on the monitor but luckily the screen on the Surface stays a pointer.

    I have remedied my situation by going into the settings / devices / mouse / additional mouse settings /

    under Mouse properties, select the second tab, "pointers"

    hit the drop down menu under Scheme, select a different scheme, APPLY and close and my square box turns into a different pointer.

    This is a temporary fix that works for me that can last a week or so and I have to to it again. Hope this helps.
