Change mouse pointer color and sizeDo you want to customize the look of your mouse pointer? Want an easy solution to do the same in minutes? Don’t worry. With the help of our solution steps, you can easily change the color and size of your mouse pointer, giving it a new look.

The mouse pointer comes with a default look, but with Windows 8.1, you can easily make changes to its size and color. Let me clear one more thing that changing the look of your mouse pointer will not affect the settings of your system as it is a personalization preference only.  You can change the look of your mouse pointer by adjusting some settings on the ‘Make the mouse easier to use’ page which you will find under the Ease of Access Center.

Here are the steps to change the settings in your Windows 8.1-based PC:


  1. Move the mouse cursor to the top right corner of the ‘Start’ screen to access the Charms menu.
  2. Click on the ‘Settings’ charm, and then click on ‘Change PC Settings’.
  3. Click ‘Ease of Access’ from the left pane, and then click ‘Mouse’.
  4. On the right pane, select the desired options under ‘Pointer Size’ and ‘Pointer Color’ to change mouse pointer size and color.


Did you try the above-mentioned steps? We hope these steps were helpful in changing the look of your mouse on your Windows 8.1 based PC. You can also try checking out our solution video for better understanding of the above-mentioned steps.
