Dumb Question

Post by Leo »

Hand Pointer.jpg
When I move my mouse to select an ICON, the hand covers the first part of the text. I need to be able to read the text as I do not always remember what the ICON is for.

Can I move the text "above the icon

Can I make the hand transparent with just an outline.

Can I force the text do display over the hand rather than under.

Can I select a different pointer for that one selection function

I know how to change a mouse pointer, BUT, no matter what, I still get the hand when I move over a link or ICON.

Jim, thanks, there were a couple of things in there that I was not aware of, but the standard windows settings didn't work for me.

I can change the mouse pointer no problem. That is not the problem. It's all about the hand.

Presumably you're running the mouse icons at a much larger scale than normal? Even with the Extra-Large set the hand doesn't cover the text for me.

You can change the pointer used for Link Select (default is the hand) by using the control panel mouse options (you can run cpanel from Windows key-R) or select Additional Mouse Options in the Windows 10 mouse setup panel.
