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!

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!
Another utility I found called Shake Mouse To Locate: https://github.com/nicolasdejong/ShakeMouseToLocate. Based on the BigMouse from @spinal mentioned in other answer. Little bit richer than BigMouse and it survives computer sleep!
I wrote my own program to do this. The program waits for the mouse to be idle and then moves it to a HOME location (that you set when you start the program).
This has two benefits. First, it is less likely that you'll lose your mouse (because it returns to the well known location). Second, if you are editing a document, then the mouse will move out of the way, and not obscure your text.
