Can't Find Your Cursor?

Have you ever had trouble locating the cursor on your screen? Whether it’s jammed in a corner or camouflaged in a cloud on your desktop, this shortcut is a clever little feature in Windows XP.

1. Open the Start menu and click "Control Panel".
2. Choose "Printers and other hardware" and click "Mouse".
3. Go to the "Pointer Options" tab and check the box that says "Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key".
4. Click OK to exit.

Now, if you ever lose your cursor, just tap the Ctrl key to find it again. Isn't that the neatest thing you ever heard?
