Mouse pointer does not dim



  • My mouse pointer (arrow, and hand/finger select icon) does not dim--it stays bright white.

    You have to enable Mouse Trails (pointer trails), but it must be done in the Registry in order for this to work. It's actually very easy:

    1. Open Regedit.exe
    2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse
    3. In the right-hand pane, double-click "MouseTrails"
    4. Change the value to 99
    5. Press Enter
    6. Log out of Windows
    7. Log back in

    There's only one problem: with Mouse Trails enabled, the cursor is hidden in some video game menus. There's no workaround; you just have to set '99' back to '0' and log out and back in.
