Dude, Where’s My Mouse?


It’s hard for the DocKtor to admit that his eyes are getting older, especially since he moonlights as a Soccer Referee, but alas I do lose track of my mouse from time to time.  This happens most often when using six or so monitors.  I just cannot find the cursor (or see it) on a monitor even when I move the mouse around and around.  Fortunately, some folks at Microsoft appear to have the same issue so they implemented a useful setting in the Mouse Properties of the Device Manager.  The DocKtor checked the box for Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key as shown below.  This makes a soft of radar like wave thing pulse for a second when I press the CTRL key, making it much easier to find the mouse pointer.
