“It’s hard to see your mouse…” said the customer, “It’s pretty small.”  I just heard this while doing a demo “ride-along” with a prospect of mine.

This is a very (very!) common problem, as screen resolution of computers has continued to increase – and it has a very simple solution.  Do two things:

  1. Increase your mouse cursor size
  2. Choose a mouse cursor style that is “filled-in” or high contrast.

On Mac, you’ll find mouse size adjustment in:

  • System Preferences
  • Accessibility
  • Display
  • Cursor…
  • (about 200% is good – move to the second mark on the scale)

On Windows you’ll find mouse size and fill-in choices in:

  • PC Settings
  • Ease of Access
  • Mouse…
  • (I’d recommend trying the two middle choices)

Now enjoy the improved visibility your audiences will experience…!
