    Mouse Pointer Gone Retro (Like XP)


    Hi, I need your help. I was looking around to see where I could change my Mouse Sensitivity and I found a post on some website. It said to search "Change how your mouse works" in Settings. So I did, and it brought me to this screen: Click image for larger version So then I saw you could change it to black and stuff. So when I saw that you couldn't change mouse sensitivity I switched it back to white and X'd the window. But my mouse is like that really low-resolution mouse pointer like in Windows XP. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Sean
