The size and the brightness of the mouse pointer is Windows XP is sometimes difficult to see. The size is likely suitable for those with good vision but unsuitable for those with vision impairments.
Windows XP allows you to change the appearance of the mouse pointer so that it is bigger and brighter, thereby easier to see. To accomplish this, open the Mouse applet within the Control Panel and select the Pointers tab. Using the drop down arrow under Scheme, you can select a different scheme that best meets your vision requirements. For example, if you need to mouse pointer to appear larger, select the Magnified scheme or use the Windows Standard (large) scheme. Be sure to experiment with the various schemes so you choose the one that is right for your vision.
