Macintosh OS/macbookpro


how can one change the cursor size on a mac?

Hi, Paul,

I wish every question I got was this easy to answer!  

*Go to the Apple Menu or your dock and open your System Preferences.  
*Go down to Universal Access and open that.
*Choose the Mouse & Trackpad tab.
*At the bottom of the window, you will see "For difficulties seeing the cursor" and below that an arrow that can go from normal to Large.  Drag that arrow until you find the size you like.

The SEEING tab also allows adjustments if the size of things on the screen is an issue.  You can play with those, too, to enhance the computer experience.
