I have some visual impairment, and I often have problems finding my mouse pointer on the screen. I want to change the color of the pointer.

I know in "Universal Access" you can change the size, but it still doesn't help that the cursor 'blends in' with everything else on my screen. I want to make my cursor bright green or red.

I'm using OS X 10.6.7.

  • this doesn't actually change the color of the cursor bout it is a great way to find out where the cursor is. you can get iCursor for free on the mac app store – user24827 Jul 4 '12 at 8:36

Anything that allows you to change the color is paid software. Here's MightyMouse.
Unfortunately, it looks like MightyMouse has been discontinued :(

I would recommend this free software that displays a circle around your cursor. When you haven't moved your mouse for awhile and you move it, it'll display a circle around the pointer. Here's the software.

  • This is very convenient, free, and user friendly. I wish it was 64 bit, but it does run just fine in Lion. Wonderful. – zevlag Aug 26 '11 at 16:59
  • this doesn't really answer the question. – worc Dec 16 '16 at 21:04

I think this application may help you:



Try Omnidazzle you can not change the color, like I want to but you can see a thing round the mouse to find it by pressing a key. Try it.

  • Can you provide links or screenshots that clearly identify why the OP would want to use this program? – sameetandpotatoes Nov 2 '13 at 17:35
