      How to Hide the Mouse Pointer While Typing

      Have you ever noticed how distracting your mouse pointer can be, especially when you are typing? Don’t you wish there is a way for it to go away so you don’t have to stop every so often just to move the mouse? Here’s how to hide the mouse pointer to make it a little less distracting so you can continue typing with ease.

      1. Click “Start” > “Control Panel”
      2. Click “Mouse”.
      3. Click “Pointer Options” tab.
      4. Check “Hide pointer while typing” box under Visibility.

      I don't actually find the pointer a problem,I usually park it at bottom of page.

      That is a really good idea and I honestly didn't realise this was an option at all :) I do sometimes have this problem when I forget to move it to the bottom of the screen so it is out of the way.

      Thanks for sharing toetapping :)
