Now, let us discuss what these mouse utilities are all about for those who are lacking the relevant knowledge.
What is Find My Mouse in PowerToys and how to use it?
There are times when you may not be able to find the mouse cursor on your screen. It’s rare, but it does happen. In a situation like this, you will want to use the Find My Mouse function from PowerToys to locate it as quickly as possible.
In order to find this feature in PowerToys, you must first open the app, then navigate to the Mouse Utilities category.
The next step is to find your mouse pointer. To do this, press the left Ctrl key twice to focus the mouse pointer. In just a few seconds, you should see its location.
How to turn on the Find My Mouse feature?
From the Mouse Utilities section, please click on the Open Settings button. After the Settings area has loaded, check if Enable Find My Mouse is on.
What is Mouse Highlighter in PowerToys and how to use it?
OK, so the Mouse Highlighter utility is designed to make it possible for the user to easily differentiate left and right mouse clicks on their computer screen.
How to turn on Mouse Highlighter?
This feature, similarly, to Find My Mouse, should be on by default. But if it isn’t, then go to Mouse Utilities > Open Settings > Enable Mouse Highlighter, and that’s it.
