Making Windows 10 Accessible

Changing mouse settings

Whether your mouse control comes from a touchpad or moveable mouse, when you use it around your screen, it displays a variety of symbols often called pointers. You can control the size and color of your mouse pointer in the Ease Of Access settings, and even configure it so that keys on your numeric keypad can control the movement of your pointer on the screen if you have trouble controlling a physical mouse device. When this feature is turned on, numeric keypads embedded in keyboards have keys that you can use to move the pointer up, down, left, and right, as well as paging up and down.

Change how your mouse works

  1. In the Ease Of Access window, click Mouse.
  2. Click to select a pointer size.
  3. Click to select the pointer color (white, black, or white and black).
  4. Click to turn the numeric keypad mouse control on or off.
