Why is the arrow on my laptop disappearing?
« on: 09:46:48, 17/04/20 »
Every so often, lately, the arrow disappears - when I reboot it reappears, but it's annoying if I'm in the middle of typing a reply or message ???

Same problem as Celeste and screen freeze. A new mouse seems to have it sorted.

I've never used a mouse, I think it's setting but could be another techy fault.

The disappearing arrow on your laptop could be due to a few different reasons: Touchpad Sensitivity: If you're using a touchpad, accidental touches or gestures might be causing the cursor to hide. Try adjusting the touchpad sensitivity in your laptop's settings. Driver Issues: Sometimes, outdated or corrupt drivers can cause the cursor to disappear. Make sure your touchpad or mouse drivers are up to date. You can check for updates through the Device Manager or your laptop manufacturer's website. External Mouse: If you have an external mouse connected, the system might be prioritizing it over the touchpad. Disconnecting the mouse and reconnecting it can sometimes resolve the issue. Cursor Settings: It's also possible that cursor settings have been accidentally changed. Go to the control panel and check the mouse settings to ensure everything is set up correctly. Software Glitch: Occasionally, software bugs can cause the cursor to vanish. Restarting your laptop can often resolve these temporary glitches. If none of these solutions work, you might want to reach out to tech support for more detailed troubleshooting. Hope this helps!
