If in MS Office the mouse cursor disappears (is invisible)
In some versions of MS Office and in applications such as MS Word the mouse cursor may become practically invisible, when at its “text editing” mode (a small thin vertical line).
Follow this simple way to correct the cursor problem and stop trying to guess where it is moving your mouse desperately here and there.
Go to Control Panel > Mouse, and change the “Pointers” scheme to the TechnoArea set; this is just the default scheme, but including a thicker cursor for the edit mode. You may also like to enable cursor shadow for additional visibility.
Of course you can also use a large cursor scheme or a ‘dark’ scheme, etc. These are ugly solutions you have to resort to only if you face extreme visibility problems, otherwise the elegant default scheme as changed by TechnoArea will be enough to have your vision increased.
