Making your mouse pointer larger

Many people have difficulty seeing the mouse pointer, this section explains how to make it bigger. The pointer changes shape depending on where it is on the screen. Most often it appears as a small white arrow with a black outline; over a white background this is simply a black outline. In some cases it is even less easy to see. For example, over any area where you can type it turns into a 'I' cursor (called an ' I-beam ' ). This section shows you how to increase the size of your mouse pointer so that it will be easier to see under all conditions.
