Making Windows 10 Accessible

Making elements on your screen easier to see

You can adjust some visual options to help you spot certain elements on your screen. For example you can adjust the thickness of your mouse pointer (the little arrow on the screen that shows the location of your mouse). You can also control the duration for which notifications about your computer, such as how to handle a newly inserted USB stick, stay on the screen, to give you more time to read them.

Adjust how cursors and notifications appear

  1. In the Ease Of Access window, click Other Options.
  2. Click the Show Notifications For drop-down list and select an increment from 5 seconds to 5 minutes.
  3. Click the Cursor Thickness slider and drag it to the desired width.
