When did you notice the change from thin to thick? Have you added any new software or updates? Did you maybe add a new desktop theme? Sometimes desktop themes can change these simple things.

You might try this and see if it helps. Click Start/Control Panel/Printers and other Hardware/Mouse/Pointers/ and make sure it is set to Windows Default there. If it is set to default, the only other place I can think to look would be in the Appearance and Themes area.

As a suggestion to reduce the unnecessary quotes and cluttering up of threads and making them almost unreadable. Please use the following guidelines:

When replying to a post, don't use the Reply button under the post, unless there is something specifically in the post, that you want to quote.

Use either the button at the top of the page labeled Add Reply, or one of the 2 buttons at the bottom of the page, labeled Fast Reply, and Add Reply.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
