I have the "Show location of pointer when I press CTRL key" option on in Mouse Properties to help me find my mouse pointer. This however is not enough as I have a 4 monitor setup and if the mouse is somewhere in the periphery, the mouse locator circle barely registers. Is there something I can do to make the pointer locator more visible? I am thinking big huge thick pulsating reticles that show where my mouse could be hiding. Googling for software brings back rather sketchy results.

This question is super old, but I ran across it trying to solve the same problem (four monitors in a 2x2 configuration).

Best solution I've found so far is multi-monitor mouse which has a hotkey for jumping the mouse to specific monitors. I about to set it up for just one hotkey: jump the mouse to my primary monitor; forget looking for it, make it be here!

"forget looking for it, make it be here!" This is the correct way to think about the problem. Unfortunately my needs from 2012 have changed. I now need a solution for bringing my mouse to me on a multi monitor OSX setup... ;) – Roger Jan 9 at 1:16
Alas, can't help you there (and MMM doesn't have the keybind I said I was going to make: all the sads). – Draco18s Jan 9 at 4:24
