Mouse Pointer Customization

As previously noted, I will be covering some smaller features in macOS Monterey over the next few weeks. One of those features that might go unnoticed is the ability to customize the Mouse Pointer. This is really a fun thing to do. Here is how you do it.

Mouse Pointer

You can customize your Mac Mouse Pointer in the Accessibility Preference Pane.

Once in this area, select “Display” in the left sidebar.

In the next screen, click on the “Pointer” tab.

In the next window, you can choose what fill color your pointer will have and what outline color as well.

If you look closely, you will see my pointer in the bottom right portion of the window. I chose to make the fill white with a black outline. That configuration shows up great for me, but you can choose any colors that work for you. All you have to do is click in those small squares and the Mac color palette pops up for you to make choices.


This is not a big deal, but it may be helpful to set your mouse pointer to colors that work for you.
