Few days back i start experiencing a new weird problem in windows 11 as well as windows 10 PC. My mouse cursor start disappearing inside any text field, whether it be documents or address bar of browser or search fields. It became too difficult to select any piece of text as you are not sure about the position of the cursor. After lot of research, i finally fixed it myself. Here is how to do it.
Fix 1 – Change Cursor style
1 – Open Run command box by pressing Windows key and R key together.
2 – Now, Type MAIN.CPL in it and click OK.
3 – Now, click on pointers tab
4 – Now, choose Text select from the customise
5 – Now, click on browse.
6 – Now, select beam_r.
7 – finally, click on Apply and then OK.
Fix 2 – Hide Pointer while typing
1 – Open RUN command box by pressing Windows and R key from your keyboard.
2 – Type MAIN.CPL in it and click OK button.
3 -Choose Pointer options tab from top
4 – Now, Uncheck the options which says Hide pointer while typing
5 -Click Apply and OK
Fix 3 – Display Pointer trails
1 – Just Open the RUN command box by hitting Windows and R key
2 – Write MAIN.CPL in the text field and click OK .
3 – Click Pointer options tab
4 – Select Display Pointer trails
5 -Click Apply and OK buttons.
Hope it helped

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.
finally, the solution to a problem ive had for months!!!! thank you so much for the help 🙂 <3
I am an ECE student but I got to visit this site to resolve this problem lul. Nonetheless I was saved. God bless.
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.
Just got a new keyboard and mouse. I couldn’t believe how difficult it made writing emails! Thanks so much for this!
