Click CTRL to find that mouse pointer in Windows 8.1 Pro

If you are having trouble finding your mouse pointer while flipping through multiple monitors or tons of tabs and windows, this is a good tool. The Windows 8.1 settings don’t include the option, but the “Mouse” settings show the more advanced configurations.

Click the Windows/START key and type “mouse” to search for the settings.

Select the option that has the mouse icon, not the main Windows 8 gear for settings.

Then click the “Pointers Options” tab.

Check the box at the bottom to show the location of the mouse when you press the CTRL key.
