Solved: Visually Impaired Cursors
I am visually impaired. Where might I find large cursors that will run on my D600 with XP?

D600? Are you referring to a Dell Latitude D600 Notebook? With a 14.1-inch screen?

In Control Panel, in the Accessibilty Options, click on the Display tab. The bottom section gives you Cursor Options. It does not make the cursor bigger, but makes the blinking cursor selected location much wider. Would that help?

You could also use Utility Manager. It provides Magnifier, Narrator & On-Screen Keyboard. You can start the Utility Manager by pressing the Win Logo key And the "U" key together.

I'm sure there must be huge downloadable cursors online, but I don't know where offhand. I search and post what I can find. Good luck!

Look here: http://joescursors.tripod.com/HVCurPg.htm

They have a collection of large and brightly colored animated cursors for Windows XP.

And they are freeware.

You could also turn on the cursor tail? Just be careful if you are using inverted colours as your cursor could become invisible as it will match the background colour!

Yes. It is a Dell Latitude D600 Notebook.

Now exactly where is that Win Logo key located on the keyboard?

BTW. For the moment I have chosen the dinosaur because he is green and easy to track. That Magnifier sounds good because jujst making the letters on the screen just a tad bigger would be a big help. Thanks!

There are two of these keys, one next to each Alt key. Some people call them Win Logo keys or Starts or Alt option keys. I find them very handy when I have something running full screen & I need quick access to my Toolbar.

Sorry I was slow responding. I was busy ghosting two 1TB drives that are near full capacity.

What would cause my 'Accessibility Wizard' to not respond?
