After upgrading Windows, many users have complained about vanishing mouse cursor or pointer. This issue often also crops up after you wake your Windows computer from the sleep mode.
In this post, we show you two ways to fix the error.
Solution 1 – Re-enable the mouse
It’s possible that Windows disabled your mouse while the upgrade was running or the sleep mode was on. If that’s the case, you can’t use the mouse and won’t even see the cursor on the screen. Re-enabling the mouse, as you may guess, will do the trick.
You can re-enable the mouse in two ways:
Laptop users need to press the combination key that turns on or turns off the mouse. Typically, the combination is the Fn key and F11, F9, F5, or F3.
Another way to enable the mouse is to use mouse settings. Here are the steps to follow:
- Press Win key, next type “mouse”. When the Mouse Settings appears on your screen, highlight it using up or down arrow key
- Next in Mouse Settings, use the Tab key on the keyboard to highlight Additional mouse options
- Next in Mouse Properties, use the Tab key to highlight Buttons
- Now using the right arrow key open Device Settings
- Next in case the mouse is disabled, use the Tab key to highlight the Enable button and then press the Enter key
