Easier to see

I really hate to admit it, but my eyes are slowly going bad with age. I can still read the computer screen well enough to get by, but the one thing I occasionally have a problem with is locating the mouse pointer.
Even if your eyes are fine, if you are working on an iMac with a 27" screen or using multiple monitors, the mouse pointer can sometimes be difficult to locate.
Fortunately, there is a way to make the mouse pointer larger to make it easier to see.
To increase the size of the mouse pointer:
- Go to System Preferences from the Dock or the Apple Menu.
- Choose the Universal Access preference panel.
- Choose the Mouse & Trackpad view.
- About three quarters of the way down, there is a slider for Cursor Size.
I have found that if you move the slider about one quarter of the way to the right, you get a mouse pointer that is large enough to always find but not too large to get in the way.
