The default mouse pointer in Windows 10 operating system is white with a black border – like in the earlier versions of Windows. While most are cool with it, some may find it difficult to notice – especially those who may be differently-abled. Sure you can always change the Windows Cursor thickness & Blinking Rate to make it more visible or you can press CTRL key to locate the mouse pointer. But Windows 10 lets you change the Mouse Pointer color and make it red, solid black, or any other color you want, easily.
Change Mouse Pointer color in Windows 10
To make your mouse pointer sold black, click on the Start Button to open Start.
Next, click open Settings > Ease of Access > Vision > Cursor & pointer.
You will see the settings which let you:
- Change the Pointer and Cursor size
- Change the cursor thickness and
- Change the pointer colors.
You can change the pointer and cursor size. You can also change the Pointer color.
The first one is the default, and it is white inside, as mentioned.
Choose the second option and it becomes solid black.
If you select the 3rd option under Pointer color, if you move your pointer over a black background, that part of the cursor or pointer will become white automatically.
The fourth option lets you change the color of the pointer totally.
Try each of them and see which suits you the best and then set it.
You can also Adjust Text Cursor Indicator size, color & thickness or change Mouse Cursor size, color & scheme for better visibility.
This will improve the visibility of your mouse pointer and cursor.
