Question from Melissa B.: I bought a new Acer laptop about a month ago, and now I can’t see the mouse pointer. It was working fine till my 4 year old started pressing keys and then all of a sudden it was gone.
I hope you can tell me how to restore my missing mouse pointer. If you can I’ll be forever in your debt! LOL
Rick’s answer: Accidentally hiding the mouse cursor is an easy thing to do Melissa, but it’s usually just a simple setting change that should be reversed after a couple of key presses.
Try pressing the Fn+F7 key combination and see if that helps. Let me know if it doesn’t and we’ll try something else.
Update from Melissa: Thanks Rick, it worked like a charm!!
