How to: Increase The Mouse Pointer Size
On modern high resolution displays you would be forgiven if you lost your mouse pointer.
Apple have included settings to allow users to increase the size of their mouse pointer, thereby making computing easier for the masses.
In order to change the size of your mouse pointer you will need to go to System Preferences > Universal Access. Then proceed to the tab titled Mouse (on Apple laptops this tab will be titled Mouse & Trackpad).
As you can see from the above image, the area we are concerned with is: For Difficulties Seeing The Cursor. By default the Mac OS is set to Normal. As you drag the Cursor Size bar towards the righthand side you will notice the mouse pointer will also increase in size.
When you are satisfied with the size of the pointer, simply close the System Preferences and your preference will be enabled.
