    I have a laptop (386 Ultralite SL/20, 120 MB HD and who knows how little RAM. No, I'm not writing this off of it....that would be horribly, horribly wrong. :)) that I use mainly for typing. Mainly, Word 6.0. (It's worth the 5 minute wait, really it is. :D) But I've got a monochrome LCD screen, and as soon as the cursor turns into the text cursor, I lose sight of it completely because it is the same color as the background. The same thing happens with the blinking cursor that shows where I am on the page--I can't find it without putting my face less than 2 inches away.

    So, is there a way to change the cursor color? Thanks ^^

    Go to Control Panel and check your Mouse program (or whatever your pointing system may be). Usually there are a variety of settings you can pick from.

    Checked the mouse options, all I could change was the tracking speed, mouse trails, and the left/right mouse buttons. I checked the color options too, but nothing in there about a cursor.
