Cursor Vanishes while playing Fullscreen games with f.lux enabled (4.43)



  • The Title pretty much explains it all. I don't know if this is a bug or a setting I have enabled.

    I should Also note that the cursor won't vanish when watching a video in fullscreen.



  • That's a Windows problem when forcing a software mouse cursor. Disable that option in f.lux for a software mouse cursor.

    For some reason, this doesn't happen in all games.



  • Do you have the checkbox "Software mouse cursor when needed..." checked in Options? We could try turning this off for fullscreen apps.

    Which game are you seeing this in?



  • Hi, maybe to contribute.

    I run v4.43 on 2 Windows instances. One on Win7 and one on Win10. This white cursor issue is present in Win7 when I run any Office applications (i.e. Word, Excel), even after toggling the "software mouse cursor" feature.

    However there isn't an issue when running these on my Win10.



  • Does the "change color to" menu have "expand range" on windows 7? Have you rebooted since installing?



  • @herf I had f.lux uninstalled a while as it conflicts with an image recognition app I'm using. After re-installation it does prompt to expand range and reboot. However I still do face the similar white cursor issue, which is quite frustrating due to working against the plain white background of Word/Excel. The only work around is by right clicking on app, where the list appears can I see the mouse again in black outline to navigate.



  • You can try opening Windows Magnifier and set it to 100%.

    Or you can make a change to the Registry, but let me know what you think of using the Windows Magnifier first.
