How to Locate Mouse Pointer (Cursor) Location on Windows 11?

Windows 11 uses a standard mouse pointer (also known as cursor), small in size and white in color. However, if you need, you can increase the mouse pointer size and change the color. The default small size is not useful, especially for poor vision people. It may be even worst if you use a widescreen monitor with a higher resolution. Poor vision people may find difficulty in spotting the mouse pointer across bigger screens.

Windows 11 includes a lesser-known feature that helps you to locate the mouse pointer on your computer. You can locate your cursor using the CTRL key, isn’t it good? If you have difficulty locating the cursor on your screen, you should turn on this feature on your PC.
