Windows 7: Changing the cursor colour in Windows Live Mail

Changing the cursor colour in Windows Live Mail

When using WLM on our Dell, Windows 7, 64 bit system the cursor and all border line colours are displayed in a very pale blue colour. In particular, it is hard to see the cursor at times. Is there an easy way to alter this cursor from a pale blue to a black colour in Windows live mail? Can you also change the border line colours? Thank you.

Options/Compose Tab/Compose Font/"Font Settings"-Button. One of the font settings is the color.

Thank you for the reply. I checked that through but it seems the font settings there apply to mail or news with the ability to alter only the Font / Style / Size that are in use. It is the actual cursor colour that we would like to be able to adjust if thats at all possible. I note too that it is on the address bar area where the cursor appears in the light blue colour but that it changes to black when you come down to the text area..

In my version of WLM the cursor is black (and I agree that the color is the same no matter what the font color is). Not sure what you mean by "boarder line". I did notice that the vertical lines separating different sections of the main WLM window and the column headers are very faint until you scroll over them when they glow brighter in the same color as the chosen color theme for WLM.

What color is the cursor in Notepad, Wordpad, or your browser when filling in a form?
