Make Your Windows Type Cursor More Visible By Increasing Its Thickness

If you ever find yourself squinting at your screen, searching for your typing cursor, you might want to increase it’s thickness. Here’s how you can make that famous blinking line a little easier to see in Windows.

Changing the cursor width isn’t for everyone, but if you’re like me, it’s common to lose track of the cursor on the page you’re typing. The How-To Geek recommends increasing the thickness of the cursor in your Windows settings.

  1. Go to your Control Panel, and then Ease of Access.
  2. Select Ease of Access Center then Make the computer easier to see.
  3. Scroll down to Set the thickness of the blinking cursor, and change the value in the drop down menu until you’re satisfied.

You can make it as ridiculously thick as you want, but as long as you can see it, you’ll be good to go. Test it out in a text application and enjoy seeing your cursor at all times.
