  1. Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to edit our thesis manuscript and it’s so difficult then the cursor turns as white as the page itself.

  2. I am an ECE student but I got to visit this site to resolve this problem lul. Nonetheless I was saved. God bless.

  3. Thanks a lot, this was very helpful.

    Others suggested that you’d have to deactivate the “hide during typing” option under pointer options, but it didn’t work for me. This, however, was the solution.

    I had this problem multiple times now on Windows 10 and it would be fixed after rebooting the device, but I don’t like closing all work for a reboot just because of such a nonsense issue.

    Actually, I believe it already suffices to (re)apply the default cursor scheme again to reload the stuff. Will try this next time.

  4. Just got a new keyboard and mouse. I couldn’t believe how difficult it made writing emails! Thanks so much for this!

  5. Thank you very much for the step-by-step process on how to fix this annoying issue! Greatly appreciated.

  6. You are amazing! Thank you! How in the world did you figure that out?! I was getting nauseous trying to work and have a headache from the curser coming and going. Thank you so much for allowing me to continue my work!
