How to Change the Mouse Pointer Color and Size on Windows 10

Size and color options of the Windows 10 mouse pointer.

Windows 10 now allows you to increase the size of the mouse cursor and change its color. Want a black mouse cursor instead? You can choose that! Want a huge red slider easier to see? You can choose that too!

This feature has been added to Windows in the Updated May, 2019. It was always possible to customize the mouse cursor theme, but now you can do it without installing custom pointer themes.

To find this option, go to Settings> Ease of Access> Cursor and Pointer. (You can press Windows + I to quickly open the Settings application.)

To change the pointer size, drag the slider under "Change Pointer Size". By default, the mouse pointer is set to 1 – the smallest size. You can choose a size from 1 to 15 (which is very big).

Choose a new color in the "Change Pointer Color" section. There are four options here: white with a black border (default), black with a white border, inverted (for example, black on a white background or white on a black background) or your selected color with a black border.

If you choose the color option, a green lime slider is the default. However, you can choose the color of your choice. In the "Suggested Pointer Colors" pane that appears, select "Choose a custom pointer color" and choose the one you want.

Customize the color of the mouse pointer in the Windows 10 Settings application with the green slider selected.

That's all! If you want to change the cursor of your mouse again, come back here.

From this Settings pane, you can also make the text entry slider thicker so that it is easier to see when typing. If you have a PC with a touch screen, you can also control the visual tactile feedback that appears when you touch the screen.
