How to change the cursor on a Mac os x 10.6

lee5, Apr 26, 3:21am
My mother does a lot of word processing, and if she has to go back and insert something, she finds she wastes a lot of time trying to find the small curser, to her eyes, it seems to disappear, so would like to see if I can make it bigger, and/or change its colour. Thanks, Lee.

system preferences - universal access - mouse. There is a slider for cursor size. Is that what you are after?

Thanks Morrisman1, but the actual line (maybe cursor is not the right word?)that stays in front of the typing is the problem, if my mother has her head down, looking at the hard copy of what she is putting into the computer, then looks at the screen, she has to really stop and look for where she's typing when inserting, say, a paragraph. On her old computer (PC) she could make it thicker, and change its colour. Lee.

She uses Word, but also has the same problem writing e-mails on the internet.
