How to keep track of mouse on the screen

Q: I waste a lot of time looking for my mouse on the screen. Is there a way to change the look of the mouse's arrow, so I could find it more easily?

A: You want a bigger pointer that contrasts more with the normal colors on the screen?
  1. Go to Control Panel. Right-click on Mouse to Open.
  2. Click the Pointers tab. There's a drop-down menu from which you can select different schemes.
I recommend Windows Black (extra large).

Another option is to display pointer trails, though I personally find it annoying. You can click the Pointer Options tab in #2 above and select Display Pointer Trails.

There's also an option there for showing the location of the pointer when you press the CTRL key. (With this option on, whenever you press the CTRL key, the mouse pointer is shown like the epicenter of an earthquake.)
