By default in Windows, the pointer is automatically hidden while typing to ensure that the pointer doesn't block your view of the text you're typing.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off to automatically hide the pointer while typing for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
Note   Note
It is up to the application to honor this setting, so this setting may not be supported by all apps.

Here's How:

1. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the Mouse icon.

2. Click/tap on the Pointer Options tab, check (on - default) or uncheck (off) the Hide pointer while typing box under Visibility for what you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
