Make the Mouse Cursor Big – Mac Kung Fu, 2nd Edition

Tip 196Make the Mouse Cursor Big

Migrating Windows users might recall being able to change the type and size of the mouse pointer within Microsoft’s products. Apple doesn’t allow users to change the design of the mouse pointers, but you can make them bigger. This is intended to help those with limited eyesight, but it can be very useful for the rest of us too! You’ll find the setting within the Accessibility pane of System Preferences (Apple menuSystem Preferences). Click the Display tab on the left, and then click and drag the Cursor Size slider. The changes will take effect immediately, so choose a size you’re happy with.

To revert to the default sizes, just click and drag the Cursor Size slider all the way to the left.
