Windows 11 offers several ways to customize your mouse cursor, including the ability to change its color to anything you want. This can help you see the pointer better or just give your Windows PC a unique sense of style. Here’s how to do it.
First, open Windows Settings by pressing Windows + i. Alternatively, you can right-click on the Start menu and select “Settings”.
In Settings, select the “Accessibility” section in the sidebar, then click “Mouse pointer and touch”.
In the Mouse Pointer and Touch options, expand the Mouse Pointer and Style menu, if necessary, by clicking on it. Then, select the “Custom” mouse cursor option at the far right of the list, which is indicated by a colored pointer arrow in a square.
After selecting “Custom”, you can choose a mouse pointer color from one of the eight “Recommended colors” shown in a row of squares below, or you can click the plus (“+”) button labeled “Choose another color” to select a custom color.
After clicking the plus button, a color palette will appear in a small window. Place the circle inside the color gradient to choose the custom mouse pointer color you want. Note that when selecting a custom color for the mouse cursor, the border of the mouse cursor will automatically change between black for the lightest colors and white for the darkest colors.
When you are ready, click “Finish”.
Congratulations, you are the owner of a new mouse pointer with a custom color! Your settings have already been saved, so don’t hesitate to close the Settings window when you’re happy with how your slider is set. Happy indication!
