Fix Mouse Cursor Disappears on Windows 10

Here are the two methods that you should try.

Method 1: Re-enable your mouse

Windows may have disabled your mouse during the upgrade from a previous version or while your computer was in sleep mode. This will make your mouse unusable and your mouse cursor disappear. You should re-enable your mouse in order to restore its cursor.

There are two ways you can re-enable your mouse:

A. If you are using a laptop, you should try pressing the key combination on your laptop keyboard that can turn on/off your mouse. Usually, it is the Fn key plus F3, F5, F9 or F11 (it depends on the make of your laptop, and you may need to consult your laptop manual to find it out).

B. You can also enable your mouse in the mouse settings. To do so:

  1. Press the Win key on your keyboard, then type “mouse“. When you see “Mouse settings appear in the menu above, press the up or down arrow on your keyboard to highlight it, then press Enter.
    Windows 10
  2. In Mouse settings, press Tab on your keyboard until Additional mouse options (under Related Settings) is highlighted. Press Enter on your keyboard to select it.
    Windows 10
  3. In the Mouse Properties window, press Tab on your keyboard until the Buttons tab in the window is highlighted (with a dotted border.)
    Windows 10
  4. Press right arrow key on your keyboard until Device Settings in the window is opened. (The name of this tab could be different, depending on the mouse you use.)
    Windows 10
  5. If your device is disabled, press Tab on your keyboard until the Enable button is high lighted, and press Enter to enable the device.
