How to Make Your Cursor Yellow

The default white colour of a cursor, or mouse pointer, makes it blend into a white background so that is sometimes difficult for computer users to locate. Because yellow is a brighter colour, it is easier to detect on many backgrounds. The mouse properties tool in Windows includes a yellow cursor in its list of options. The tool also includes the option of returning the cursor to its default colour, so you can change it to yellow with confidence.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the Start button and click "Control panel" on the menu. Click "Appearance and Personalization" and click "Personalization." Alternatively, you can also click "Mouse" under the "Hardware and Sound" category in the Control Panel.

  2. 2

    Click "Mouse Pointers." A "Mouse Properties" dialogue box appears. Click the "Pointers" tab.

  3. 3

    Click "Normal Select" in the "Customize" field. Click the "Browse" button. Click the yellow cursor at the top of the list.

  4. 4

    Click the "Open" button to return to the "Mouse Properties" box. Click the "OK" button to apply the change and close the box.
