Cursor disappears

By chgobigdog ·
Its happened several times - the cursor becomes invisable! I don't know what's causing it to hide. Makes it hard to close screens when you can't see the cursor. Only way I can fix is to close out system and restart. How can I fix? Irv50

If replaceing or updating your drivers doesnt work odds are that you are low or out of system resources. Don't run as many programs at once. Keep things like aol from running on boot. Good luck.

It's possible that your mouse speed is a bit too fast. Try slowing the speed down via the control panel (mouse), or changing you mouse pointer to one that's more visible.
If you need to change from one app. to anoter <alt>+<tab> brings up a box where you can cycle forward through open apps. or backwards <alt>+<shift>+<tab>. Another way of closing your current app. is <alt>+<F4>

I had this problem when users were switching between programs running in a (full-screen) dos box and then coming back to windows.

My solution: starting and exiting a new dos session seemed to refresh the display.

I became an instant hero to the users who would just power off their pcs to bring their mouse back!
