Windows 7: How to change cursor...

How to change cursor...

I don't use a mouse. The cursor is a little too small for me. A Google search showed me your instructions for changing it when using a mouse.

Is there a way to enlarge or change my cursor?

How can you not use a mouse? Do you use the keyboard for everything or do you mean you use the touchpad on a laptop?

By cursor, do you mean the vertical line you see when editing a file or the arrow that the mouse/touchpad controls?

Sorry, I thought I typed out I use a Dell laptop. The arrow is just too small. I've always used a desktop so changing the mouse cursor was easy.

I'm pretty sure we covered that.

Windows considers laptop trackpads and touchpoints to be basically the same thing as a mouse.

The option for a laptop is still the same. Windows 7 is still windows 7 on a laptop. If you hook a mouse to a laptop it still moves the mouse pointer. Change it the sameway as you would on your desktop, as suggested.

Well, I changed it -- twice -- but I still have a small pointer, not the hand icon I chose.
