By default, Windows 10 uses a default pointer size and color. For most users, these default settings work fine. For others, these settings don't work so well. Whether it's that the pointer size is too small or that the white pointer against lighter colors is hard to see, it's helpful to customize the pointer. Within Windows 10, you can change the pointer size or color quickly and easily.
To change either of these mouse pointer options, simply follow these quick steps:
Figure 1. The Cursor & Pointer section of the Settings dialog box.
Figure 2. The color options of the Cursor & Pointer section of the Settings dialog box.
If you had a hard time with the default cursor settings, or you simply grew tired of the small white pointer, you now know how to change it to a style you prefer.
