I am looking to change a certain mouse pointer in WinXP. Simple you might think however, it’s not that easy. Let me explain.
I am visually impaired; I also work with VI students too. I was asked if it was possible to change specific mouse pointers so that they would become clearer/user friendly to the user. Simple I thought, go into CONTROL PANEL, select MOUSE and make the amendments in there. The only mouse pointer I wanted to amend was the ‘hyperlink’ pointer.
With the pointer set to a large green arrow (just to test) I opened up IE but when I began to type into MS Word I noticed that when adding a hyperlink to the document the customised HYPERLINK POINTER wasen’t used, instead the ‘system default’ was used – white hand with a pointing finger.
Any ideas to how to remedy this would be helpful.
P.S If I get the opportunity I will post some screenprints to try and explain/simplify what I am talking about.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
