Change size of cursor

Postby whs on Thu Feb 28, 2013 5:31 pm

The other day I went thru a lot of the Mint Mate windows/functions (trying to educate myself) and stepped on a window where I was able to increase the size of the cursor. I changed the theme and now I am back at the itty bitty cursor that I have a hard time seeing. Now I don't remember where that cursor editing function was. At my age (75), memory is not that good any more. Can someone please remind me where that cursor change option is hiding.

Hi,

Do you mean the mouse pointer?

Go to Control Center > Appearance > Appearance Preferences
Click on your theme > click Customize > Pointer
Click on a Pointer (other than Default Pointer)
At the bottom of the box the "Size" option then becomes available to resize your pointer.

Thank you very much. That was it. I would have never found my way back there. All is good now - until I hit the next bump, LOL.
