How to change the color of the mouse cursor in Windows 10 without programs


With the next update of Windows 10 we can change the color of the mouse cursor without using programs We explain how to do it

The cursor, or pointer, of the mouse is one of the essential elements of modern operating systems, since it is what allows us to scroll through the elements through of the screen and click right where we want. As it could not be less, Windows allows us to customize the mouse cursor, changing its shape, appearance and behavior to fit what we want, however, with the arrival of Windows 10 this was quite complicated. Luckily, from the next big update of Windows 10 things will change, and so we can easily change the color of the mouse pointer with just a few clicks and without using third-party applications.

By default, Windows has two types of cursors, one white and one black. Although in the previous versions we could customize the cursor of our Windows, with the arrival of Windows 10 things got quite complicated, and to be able to customize the cursor of our operating system it was necessary to resort to third-party applications, with the dangers for the correct functioning of the system that that supposes.

The truth is that customize the Windows cursor is not something that is done every day, but for users that they do (for example, to give our mouse the appearance of the macOS cursor) can be quite a nuisance.

Luckily, things are about to change, and with the arrival of The next update of Windows 10, specifically from build 18298 , we will be able to easily change the color of the cursor of our Windows 10 without having to scroll to complicated configuration menus or use applications from tert eros.

How to change the color of the cursor in Windows 10

The first thing to indicate is that this feature will not be available until the arrival of Windows 10 19H1 , the next update of the operating system, since it has just been seen for the first time in the last compilation of the operating system, the build 18298 .

If we are users Insider and we have chosen to try this version, we can see that, among the many new options of the Settings menu of Windows 10, in the section “ Accessibility> Cursor size and the pointer ”we will be able to see a new section that will allow us to change the color of the mouse pointer, in addition to being able to continue changing between the different types of cursors that we have installed in our operating system.

As we can see, Windows 10 will recommend some colors depending on the theme and background we are using on our desktop. In addition, we will also be able to choose the exact color that we want to have. This change can be applied equally to both the default Windows 10 pointer and to any that we have installed manually or with third-party applications.

Taking advantage of the fact that we are in this section, remember that we can also change the pointer size so that, if we see it too small, we can always see it more easily.

What do you think of this new Windows 10 feature to customize the color mouse pointer?
