One reason why I stuck with either Windows or Android for a long time is because of customization.
Over the last couple of years, Apple has changed its stance and it’s now allowing its operating systems to be customizable. For example, the iOS 14 introduced widget and other cool features, the new macOS Monterey now allow you to easily change the color of your cursor from its traditional white outline to whatever color you want.
So if you’re like me and want to make this switch in order to make your MacBook distinguishable from the rest, then follow this short guide on how to change the color of your cursor on macOS.
From the accessibility settings within the system preferences, you can find the pointer control and manipulate it to whatever you think sits well with you.
You can do things such as change the pointer’s size, enable and disable the useful Shake mouse pointer to locate feature, and change both the outline and pointer fill colors.
So without any further ado, below is a short guide on how to do this.
Change cursor size and color on macOS Monterey
- Head over to your computer’s System Preferences and then click on Accessibility.
- From the left-hand column, click on Display.
- From the Display settings interface, you can do whatever you want such as using the slider to change the pointer’s size while also being able to switch the pointer’s color using the next two boxes
- For the Pointer Outline Color, click on the color box and select the shade that you find appealing using the color picker.
- For the Pointer Fill Color, do the same thing you did previously.
- And if you hate what you’ve done, there is a button called “Reset” which ultimately takes everything back to the factory default.
