Don't like the size and color of the mouse pointer that Windows 10 originally shipped with? You may want to customize the color and size of the mouse pointer as this is a widely used thing. The previous version of Windows allowed the ability to customize mouse pointers by selecting another pointer or installing one from the web. You've had the option to change the size or color of the mouse pointer or choose a completely different mouse pointer.

The method for changing the mouse pointer color is much the same in Windows 10. Windows 10 introduces a simpler process for changing the pointer size. The Settings application is available for quick access in Windows 10 just like the Control Panel in Windows 7. Microsoft encourages the user to switch to the Settings application and get rid of the Classic Control Panel. The downside to this feature is that there are only three sizes - small, large and extra large are available to choose from. You cannot choose another size as the options are limited.
