Ease of Locating Cursor

Post by Don Wells »

    When working in many of my applications the cursor becomes an I beam and is difficult to spot. On my old machine (an HP laptop, running Windows 7), tapping the Ctrl key caused a series of flickering rings reducing in size to appear, centered on the cursor's position.
    Is anyone aware of a similar feature which can be incorporated in a Windows 10 environment?
Regards
Don

Tick the check box 'Show location of pointer when I press the Ctrl key'.
Click OK.
