OS X Tips: Never Lose Your Cursor Again

Do you want to make your Mac’s cursor so large it doesn’t even make sense? Then we have a tip for you!

I wouldn’t really consider this one of our OS X tips that’s actually beneficial unless you are practically blind. This tip better serves anyone who wants to prank their coworkers or just have a novelty cursor for personal use.

It’s really simple:

Open system preferences > click on the “Accessibility” icon > go to the “Display” option under “Seeing” in the left column > slide the cursor size to the right and let the fun times begin!

Cursor pictured above is as big as it comically appears.

    Oooh, that’s fun. Actually nice to have the cursor slightly larger than default.

    Actually enlarging a cursor is a regular usability enhancement that all who create good screencasting videos always do before recording. But we don’t need the extreme size!
