I'm giving a presentation with Mathematica and want to point to things with my mouse so want the cursor to be nice and big. I've changed my cursor to be nice and big in Windows (8.1), but when I go to Mathematica, I get the standard, small cursor. Is there any way to change this? Thanks.

    $\begingroup$ If OS settings/external tools are not working then we are out of luck because it seems you can't do that in stable way: Changing mouse appearance at notebook level $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Kuba, I saw that post but didn't understand it and thought it wasn't what I wanted. Then I clicked on more comments to find the following post: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/1631/… which, after some tweaking, was good enough. Thanks for the help! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ So how should I put this post to an end? $\endgroup$
