Mouse Cursor Disappears on Windows 10 – correct methods of fixing

Fixing Mouse Cursor Disappears on Windows 10 with two proven methods

Most Windows 10 users say that they often get an error when the mouse pointer/cursor disappears. Usually, this moment starts with Windows updates and when the computer starts from hibernation mode. 

This problem can easily be solved without even using the mouse. 

Method 1: Turn the mouse back on

Most likely, Windows disabled the mouse on its own when upgrading from a previous version. Another option is that the PC was in hibernation mode. As a result, the mouse is unusable, and the cursor is missing. To restore the cursor, you need to turn the mouse back on. There are a total of two ways to do this:

  1. On the laptop, press a key combination on the keyboard to turn the mouse on or off (Fn + F3, F5, F9, or F11 key).
  2. You can also enable the mouse in the mouse settings. 

Press the Win key on your keyboard – enter “mouse” – in the menu that appears when the “Mouse settings” item appears, press the up/down arrow to highlight it and then press Enter – then in the “Mouse settings” section, press Tab to highlight “Additional mouse settings” and press Enter – in the Mouse Properties window press Tab to highlight the Buttons tab – press the right arrow key to open Device Settings – for the disabled device press Tab, to make the Enable button light up and press Enter to turn on the device.

If this method didn’t help you, use the following tip.

Method 2: Update the mouse driver

Perform this method if the mouse cursor does not disappear. An alternative approach is to check another mouse on your PC for driver updates.

Often the mouse pointer disappears when the mouse driver is incorrect/outdated. Update the driver by first downloading it from the manufacturer’s official website.
