Apple recently released macOS Monterey in beta capacity to developers. It brings along a bunch of useful, new features. One of the little-known features is that you can now customize the on-screen pointer’s appearance.
For a long time, Windows users have been able to customize their mouse pointers with different color options and even icons. Mac users, on the other hand, had to make do with the same old black pointer with a white outline alongside a gloved hand pointer that appears while clicking on hyperlinks.
However, now, with macOS 12 Monterey, Apple has added the ability to customize the pointer. It doesn’t yet match the customization options offered by Windows, but it’s an improvement. In that, you can now change the color of the pointer and of its outline.
That said, in this post, we’ll take a quick look at how to change the color of the pointer on macOS 12 Monterey.
Nevertheless, now that you can change how the pointer looks, it’s also useful for people with disabilities so that they can see the pointer with much more clarity than macOS allowed before. Plus, you can always tweak it to match your wallpaper.
