    Mouse Properties from the Control Panel to verify if the issue is not related to it. To do this, you may follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, type Control Panel and press
      Enter
      .
    • On the Control Panel search box, type Mouse, and then select it from the search results.
    • Click the Pointers tab, under the Customize section, select the
      Normal Select option.
    • Save the changes by clicking the Apply > OK button.
    • Once you’re done, you may check if the issue persists.

  4. Spinning Pointer on Desktop

    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.
