It is very convenient to find a mouse pointer in mac OS as shaking of the mouse enlarges the pointer for a couple of seconds. I hope we can do the same for windows too. Can we?

I googled a lot but no luck!

    There's an option in Windows to have it visually locate the mouse when you hit CTRL, have you tried that? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Feb 25 '17 at 18:19
  • @Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 well thanks friend. This will do. Just activated that from my mouse setting. :D – Pramesh Bajracharya Feb 25 '17 at 18:41

BigMouse will do the trick... http://spinalcode.co.uk/2018/11/06/windows-shake-to-find-cursor/

Just give the mouse a good shake and a giant cursor will show where your mouse is. With the added bonus of tracking how many miles your mouse has moved!

  • @spinal, Great work here. However, I found this to be very resistant to mouse movements. I need to move the pointer by a lot for the big trigger to happen. – Pramesh Bajracharya May 5 at 7:10

There is Waggle my mouse it is paid thou. But cheap !

And then there is the old... "Click CTRL to show your mouse option"

You can see it in Additional mouse options on Windows 10. Like this

  • I've just tried "Waggle my mouse" but unfortunately found it to be buggy - the huge rainbow circle it makes often gets stuck behind windows and doesn't behave well with multiple monitors. – Liam Hammett Feb 26 '18 at 21:43
