There's a setting on windows that makes rings appear around the cursor when you press the Ctrl key, plus there are other settings to help see here how to do it.

This is what it say's there.
- 1 Click the "Start" button and then click "Control Panel."
- 2 Double-click the "Mouse" icon. If "Mouse" is not shown on the Control Panel, click "Printers and Other Hardware" and then click "Mouse."
- 3 Click the "Pointer Options" tab.
- 4 Place a check in the box labeled "Display pointer trails" to have Windows display a trail behind the cursor as you move the mouse.
- 5 Click "Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key" to have Windows display a flashing ring around your pointer every time you press the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard.
- 6 Click the drop-down menu under "Scheme" and select "Magnified" or any scheme that says "Extra Large" at the end. All of these mouse pointer schemes make the mouse cursor much larger and easier to see.
- 7 Click "OK" to save your settings.
Though I appreciate your reply, I hate to say that I have already done those things. As I indicated above, I even set my mouse points to extra large to ensure that I could see them, but Adobe uses their own mouse handlers. You will notice as I mouse over the various tools in the tool panel, the pointer changes from the Extra Large Windows Scheme to the Adobe custom pointer that is tiny. And then when I am over the active content, the Ctrl-trick doesn't work and mouse tails only work with the arrow pointer, (not Adobe's custom insertion point or precise cursors).
Again, thanks for the reply, but your suggestions don't resolve the problem or help in any way, unfortunately. Still, I really appreciate the time you took to reply.
No problem Jase,
Strange though, the Ctrl trick works very well for me
It worked for me, Trevor. Thanks.
