Windows 7: How to hide mouse cursor while typing Control Panel check box no help.

How to hide mouse cursor while typing Control Panel check box no help.

My googlefu has failed me.
Most of the returns are for solutions for the exact opposite (cursor hidden not showing)
The ones that are for my trouble send me to control panel check box that I have checked.

I am using a Logitech G500 mouse, the bloatware (SetPoint) has no cursor "hide" option. Though it does not seem to matter the driver (win 7 ultimate standard system or Logitech) I use.

Seems a trivial issue other than I have a gift for clicking the dialogue box right where I prefer to see a word that the cursor obfuscates.

Any ideas or further information needed?

Welcome to Seven Forums Basoran. Not sure if this is Windows Seven compatible, but worth a try. Try it in compatibility mode if needed. Good luck.

The third party overlay brings about the behavior I desire in my mouse, wish it were os integrated, but I won't complain about the color if it does the job.

As I said, I have checked the "Hide cursor while typing" box, and cursor stays on top. At first I thought it was my logitech bloatware that was making it front and visible, so I removed it, with no change.

I liked the last disclaimer of the site you pointed me to
"While this setting should be followed by all programs, it is not the case: some third-party applications, even some programs created by Microsoft (like the free WordPad editor, included with Windows), do not respect your preferences. Most should, though"

none were, not even windows os.

Thank you for your reply though.

You might try a clean start to see if it an application interfering

If not, at least you have an alternative
