Thx Victoria. I will try it and see how it works for a few days.Follow these steps to switch to another mouse pointer scheme for your computer:
- To access your mouse pointer properties in Windows 7, click on the start button, and type mouse pointer in the start menu's search field.
- Click on the "Change how the mouse pointer looks" link displayed near the top:
- Windows 7 will open the Mouse Properties dialog, with the "Pointers" automatically selected.
- The first group of options is labeled "Scheme", and determines what cursor theme Windows 7 will use for your mouse pointers (this scheme affects all the cursors, from the simple arrow pointer, to the hand cursor shown above clickable links, to the spinning orb ("wait" cursor), etc.)
- A preview of all the cursors Windows 7 will use is displayed below, under the Customize scroll box:
- Just change scheme name under the Scheme dropdown menu at the top, and Windows will update the preview: this allows you to check out the cursors you would have before having to actually apply the new setting. As mentioned earlier, the "None" cursor theme is the one to use to make your computer faster if it is running slow (otherwise, the performance gain will be imperceptible).
- Once you have chosen the mouse pointer scheme you want to use (and selected it in the Scheme dropdown), click on the OK button to apply the change and return to Windows.
