How to Change Mouse Cursor Size on Mac?

A mouse cursor is an essential part of the screen as it helps you navigate your screen. The cursor also lets you click on different things, and without it, that would not be possible.

You would find it extremely difficult to use your Mac without a cursor. You could use your keyboard as an alternative, but keyboard shortcuts can not do everything.

Luckily, all Macs have a mouse cursor. So, you do not face that problem. The only problem that can arise is that the cursor might be too small and not visible.

To help you fix your problems regarding the mouse cursor size, we have given a step-by-step guide for you to follow. This article also mentions how you can use DemoCreator, an innovative video editing tool, to highlight and adjust your cursor in recorded videos.

Part1. How to Adjust Mouse Cursor Size on Your Mac?

You can adjust your mouse cursor on your Mac in a few easy steps.

Step 1: Go to System Preferences.

On the top left of your screen, you will see an Apple logo. Click on it and select “System Preferences.”


Step 2: Select Accessibility.

From the System Preferences window, click on the “Accessibility” icon.


Step 3: Click on Display.

In the Accessibility window, on the left, you will see an icon labeled "Display." Click on it to open other settings.


Step 4: Adjust the Settings.

Different display settings will appear, such as display contrast, invert colors, etc. You will see a slider labeled “Cursor Size.” Drag it towards the right side to increase the size of your cursor.

If your cursor is bigger, you can decrease it to bring it back to the normal size.


Step 5: Exit.

Once you set the required cursor size, exit the page and use the cursor to work on your Mac with ease.

Now, let's take a look at how DemoCreator can help you highlight and adjust your mouse cursor in recorded videos on Mac.
