I am about to teach a class with a laptop attached to a big screen.

I wish to have the mouse bigger, and with some yellow marker on it.

What (free) software is good for that (for windows) ?

ZoomIt allows you to to draw things and zoom on your screen whatever program you are using.

If you choose a lower resolution while presenting, you will also get a bigger mouse.
If you can't risk a decrease in resolution, an alternative is to set a bigger mouse scheme.

If you are using Powerpoint slides, you can write on the slides with a pen.

I would suggest walking to the back of the class before a lesson to see how big the mouse really is...

Nice tips - thanks. The zoomit is nice. – Tal Galili Oct 5 '10 at 20:56

A Freeware software does indeed exist to create custom mouse pointers.

Its called Real World Cursor Editor and here's the article through which I found this free utility.

The site also features custom cursor gallery, you can have a look if you find something useful.

Control Panel : Mouse : Pointers : Browse... and select a .cur file that you like.

I think these are actually .ico files and if so you should be able to edit them with Microsoft Paint.
