This question on the Cygwin mailing list answers the question by setting some arcane variables to the appropriate escape sequences. Add this to your .vimrc: let &t_ti.="\e[1 q" let &t_SI.="\e[5 q" let &t_EI.="\e[1 q" let &t_te.="\e[0 q"

Well, yes. There are two ways of doing this. One is described in many places (here, for one) and goes like this: In regedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common If there's no Graphics key under that Common key, right-click on the Common key and select New > Key. Type in Graphics for the key name. With the Graphics key ...

There's a setting for that, in the cygwin terminal emulator: Right-click on the window title bar > Options > Looks > Cursor > Cursor radio button

Ctrl+A should work. Ctrl+E corresponds to the end of the command line.

The Hide pointer while typing feature does not do the work of hiding the pointer. All it does is set the value of the Mouse Vanish system parameter. This is a value that can be queried using the SystemParametersInfo() WIN32 API function passing the constant SPI_GETMOUSEVANISH. Applications should query this parameter and, if the parameter is set to TRUE, ...

Click start button > Type "Mouse". Now go to the pointer tab , Click on the arrow under "Schemes" and apply "Windows Aero(System Scheme)". Finally uncheck the box in front of "allow themes to change mouse pointer" . This should work for you.

Press the Insert key on your keyboard. Try that first. Have you tried typing? When I have the blue underline, my Notepad++ is in OVR (overwrite) mode.

Here is what you are looking for: https://github.com/alexzielenski/Mousecape/releases. It is an open-source application I made that allows the customization of cursors for Mac OS X 10.8-10.10. It can import old MightyMouse files or you can create your own "cape". Included on that page is a link to download a remastered version of Max Rudberg's Svanslös ...

For users experiencing this problem under Office 2016, you can disable the animated cursor effect by creating a DWORD (32-bit) registry key called DisableAnimations with a value of 1 in the following path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Graphics Then restart the application (e.g. Outlook). No need to reboot the whole machine. If ...

I've seen this suddenly occur on rotated monitors. Setting the rotation to normal and then setting it back to 90 degrees seems to resolve it.

Open the Control Panel Category View If you're in Category view, select 'Adjust screen resolution': Or Classic View If you're rockin' the classic view, open Display Now select Adjust Resolution You should see something like this: Swap the two screens and click Apply.

Changing from from Outlook 2009 to Outlook 2016 was annoying, with the lame ribbon, ruined layout, ruined colors, ruined phone-style borderless windows, and insane animated cursor. I'm glad there is a way to turn off the cursor animation. (No cursor animation should be the default, not an insider secret switch that MS will never count statistics on.) Save ...

Using Office 365 in Windows 10 (winver 1803) as of 2019-05-02, the previously posted solution using File → Options → Ease of Access → □ Provide Feedback with Animations didn't work. Cursor movement and scrolling would be smooth in Word and discrete in Excel, regardless of this setting. However, using the global accessibility Setting Show animations in ...

This depends on the shell in question. Some shells (like AT&T ksh88) offer virtually no input line editing. In shells implementing vi mode editing (you may have to enable this with set -o vi), this is done by pressing Esc (to switch from insert mode) followed by 0 to jump to the beginning of line or $ to jump to the end of line. Then re-enter insert ...

You can tell Windows how your displays are oriented. Right click on the desktop and select "Screen resolution" In the upper box, showing the monitors, click and drag and arrange the displays to match the actual setup (you may want to click "Identify" so you know which one Windows thinks of as 1 and 2) Click OK Things should work as expected then.

Disable pointer shadow within the cursor menu. I was having the same issue and this seemed to fix the artifact on the second window.

Press "Back" button + "Home" button until mouse is disappear. And press "Scroll" button until LED power button is blink. then the cursor will appear.

I didn't find it the first three times I searched for a cursor set, but I found one tonight. There's a set of high visibility cursors at http://www.bmyers.com/public/high_visibility_cursors.cfm that fit the bill perfectly. They're large, bright red, and free. The set is missing the "Help Select" and "Working in Background" cursors, but has all the rest. I ...

Like you, I've had this problem forever. So I have written a little script that hides the mouse cursor no matter what Windows application you are using. Note that if you run Visual Studio (or anything) in elevated mode, you'll need to run my utility also in elevated mode.

According to a manual for the LG magic remote, "If you press buttons (left,right,up,down) while the pointer is in use, the pointer will disappear from the screen and Magic Remote will operate like a general remote control." Hope this helps.

You can adjust how the text wraps around the picture. If the picture or object is on a drawing canvas, select the canvas. If the picture or object is not on a drawing canvas, select the picture or object. On the Format tab, in the Arrange group, click Position. If the Arrange group is collapsed and Position isn't visible, click the Arrange button, and then ...

Create a file ~/.minttyrc, add below line to it CursorType=block Then re-launch mintty, which is Cygwin's default terminal.

I'll add my workaround to the mix here, since they all suck a little. I've fixed the problem each time by moving the mouse to the top-right or bottom-right corner of the screen. I think by getting the mouse completely off screen, it's forcing the problem to resolve itself. I'm using Windows 8.1 and have an AMD 7870.

I just had this issue and I was able to fix it by quickly shaking the mouse back and forth on the screen that was having the issue. Based on my symptoms and this forum link, I would say it has something to do with the graphics card/driver. I didn't update my drivers, though, and I have not had the issue again. I have a three monitor setup and the cursor was ...

Unchecking "allow themes to change mouse pointer" did not work for me. What did work on the other hand was the following solution (for Synaptics touch pads): https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings-winpc/touchpad-scroll-icon-stuck-on-screen-after-windows/cfb19413-a853-471c-9087-a0c2cf979068 run regedit, navigate to ...

Try Ctrl+scroll(tried two fingers in my case)

Technically, Word supports all Unicode characters. So if you can find the symbol here, you could copy/paste it. I quickly glanced over the list but couldn't find it. The font you use should also include a glyph for that particular symbol. If you can't find the symbol you want, you can obviously paste the image you used above. Or use a custom font, as Fuzzy ...

Switching the resolution between Scaled and Default for display worked for me (just switching between various scaled resolutions had no effect).

Seems it's a feature called Smart Cursoring . Details from here: When smart cursoring is turned on, you can press the LEFT ARROW, RIGHT ARROW, UP ARROW, or DOWN ARROW key to use the cursor on the page currently in view, not at its position prior to scrolling, as long as no content is selected at the original position. To turn on smart cursoring, click ...

You need to use Tools > Configuration Files > filetypes.common menu item. It will automatically create .config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.common file for you. You can also copy it manually from /usr/share/geany/filetypes.common. In order to set the caret shape you'll have to change caret=caret line to caret=caret;;true.
