    option to change mouse pointer color not showing - any ideas?


    My son wants his mouse pointer blue but in the dialog window to change the color of the pointer that option is not shown - there are only 3 boxes to choose from (white, black and inverted) with the 4th color one not showing.
    Any ideas why? he's using 10 pro
    thanks in advance

    Open the Settings app.
    Navigate to the Ease of Access category.
    Under Vision, select Mouse Pointer on the left.
    On the right, select the new the colourful mouse cursor option.
    You can choose one of the pre-defined colours or choose a custom colour

    thanks

    I can get to that screen In the place where you can change the mouse pointer color he only has 3 boxes to choose from (white, black and inverted). On my computer and in your picture there are 4 options (the color choice one and the other 3)

    I can't understand why his only has 3 and mine has 4

    That doesn't sound like a valid build number.

    You would need to have build 18298 or higher to have color options available.
