Why does the cursor look funny / strange?
Here are some keyboard commands to change the look of the cursor. • If the cursor is too thick, use the left arrow key on your keyboard to reduce the thickness of the cursor. This should return the cursor to its crosshair shape. • If the circular aspect of the cursor is too large, use the *+* and *-* keys on the numerical keypad to change the size of the circle. • Click Options>Preferences and then choose the Cursor tab to make other changes to the cursor.
