Reveal Mouse Pointer In Windows 10

Thomas is trying to track down his mouse pointer in Windows 10. He writes: “In Windows XP, holding down the ctrl key will circle the mouse pointer if you can’t find it. This is a big help for an old guy with poor eyesight. I have a CPU w/Win 10 and I tried to track it down and it came back and said ,”no results for show location of pointer when ctrl key is depressed. Please help!”

That function is still available, but you do need to enable it. Here’s how.  Type Control Panel in your search box or just say, “Hey Cortana, open Control Panel.”


The Control Panel Window will open.


Double-click on Mouse.


The Mouse Properties window will open. Click the Pointer options tab.


Then check the box next to Show location of pointer when I press Ctrl key.


Then choose Okay.
