I'll start out here by stating a problem I finally solved and then my question:
For months now I've been fighting that my hardware cursor disappears in World of Warcraft on my home theater system and time I switch modes to full screen and sometimes even in windowed mode and the reason for this is apparently due to me setting my display text size to 150% or 125%. I did find via some searching WoW customer service forums that if I set it back to 100% (default) OR 149% customized, my hardware cursor works again. I'm going to leave it at 149% because I really do need the larger text size on my HDTV and using 149%, I don't have to change back to normal, log out, log in, then start my game.
I'm glad I found this solution - but my question is, WHY is this an issue on Windows 7? Why does 149% work??
I did some searching and couldn't find any reports of this on XP - and as far as I can remember it only started happening to me when I upgraded my XP to Windows 7. I'm hoping Microsoft recognizes this as a bug and will fix it someday.
Thanks in advance!
