mouse pointer extremely small

Hi There, I'm connecting to my office computer from a brand new Dell laptop using Windows 10 and once connected my mouse pointer gets extremely small.  Approx. 1/4 the size of a sunflower seed.  I've enlarged the mouse pointer on both computers and it doesn't help. I've used Go To MyPC for years and connect using many types of devices, never had this problem.  I can't work like this, please help!

Hi Carol,
Sorry for the trouble there!

Could you check the GoToMyPC preferences on the Host computer, in the 'Performance' section?  See if toggling the quality or performance options help with the visibility aspect.

Re: mouse pointer extremely small

It's a show issue more than likely, a windows issue. Mine progressions a ton since we are continually exchanging screens and shows. To begin with ensure that your content Scale and Layout show is at 100%. I turn on full-screen line of sight as a work around.

Re: mouse pointer extremely small

Did anyone ever find a solution to this issue? I have the exact same problem and no matter what I try (including the suggested workaround) nothing works, I still have a miniscule mouse cursor when logged into my office machine from my laptop. It's painful as it's so tiny that I keep losing sight of it which slows efficient working down enormously.....

@Andy_P  Sorry for the visual problem there.

 

Could you specify what operating systems are in use on the Host and Client side?

 

And then, could you also list the monitor size, current ratio setting, and zoom (if other than 100%) ?

Re: mouse pointer extremely small

Hi

I use Windows 10 on both machines. Laptop monitor size 13.3", desktop monitor 21.5", ratio setting (if I understand correctly) is set to full size. Bottom line is that everything is absolutely fine apart from the mouse cursor size and although it's been like this for ages now it was originally OK....back in the day when LogmeinFree was still available...

Any thoughts?

Thanks
