    Sometimes my cursor becomes invisible inside a window

    I am using Windows 10 1703. For whatever reason, the mouse cursor will disappear inside a window/program (I haven't found a pattern for which windows). The cursor is visible when I take it out of the window, and invisible again when I put it back in. Sometimes the problem is solved by minimizing then maximizing the window. Why could this be happening? Could it be a driver issue? Thanks.

    - have you tried the mouse manufacturer's website?
    - their support page may have a solution..

    It might well be a display driver corruption / incompatibility problem judging by your decription. Download the latest driver from the computer / display card maker's support website and install it.

    A display driver issue is my best guess too. I just totally uninstalled all my Nvidia drivers and software (which I think Windows downloaded when I upgraded to 1703), and just reinstalled the essentials. I will see if this fixed the issue.
