show pointer location
« on: August 02, 2010, 01:24:46 PM »
Anyone know if it's possible to change the color of the circles for the "show location of pointer" option in the mouse properties?

If your talking of the 'ctrl' show pointer I don't think you can, not that I have seen (but maybe not sure). It also seems a very random thing to change.

Yes, that's the thing I'm wanting to change. I also completely agree that it's a very random thing to change. :)
It would also be a very helpful thing to change in my case. I have a workstation that has 56" of screen real estate (two 30" monitors). Finding the mouse pointer is a very difficult task at times, so I turned on the ctrl show pointer option to help. It's still a minor struggle to find the gray circles around the pointer.

One could argue that changing the trails of your pointer to high and then running the mouse/touchpad around would solve the issue, but certainly not a perfect solution.

I have checked on the original issue and can find nothing 'trustworthy'.

I've done a couple runs through of the registry for key words, but nothing seemed to fit, either.
