    Can I enlarge cursor size??
    I have to use XPEE because of job, but I bought my father an IMAC cause he couldn't stand it when his machine locked up when he went to the porn sites.

    He says the cursor is too small for his 80 year old eyeballs. I do agree. Anyway to change the size? None of the OSX books I have gone thru address this. ADthanxVANCE, Larry

    Umm.... what about.. the free one.. you know.. the one thats already in tiger, the one thats in universal access, mouse and keyboard, cursor size. I mean, why pay 10 bucks for all he wants to do is just make the cursor bigger.

    I'll translate that into a proper answer for you...

    Open System Preferences > Universal Access > Mouse > Drag the "Curser Size" slider to the right to make the cursor bigger

    Lol, okay I hadn't thought about that...

    But the one in OS X just scales the cursor (ugly jaggies!), whereas Mighty mouse can actually swap it for a larger one (smooth anti-aliased baby!), so I'd prefer that...


    But MM will currently only work on PowerPC macs, which should be the case if your father is running 10.3.
