I am setting up a computer running Vista for someone who is partially sighted and I can't find a way to enlarge the text cursor in MS word 2002. That's the 'blinking' cursor that shows where you are up to when typing. I can enlarge the cursor for everything else in Vista i.e. 'Search Boxes' etc but the change I've made though 'Control Panel' doesn't apply to MS Word. Anyone know how to do this?
Thanks but I have done that and it applies to everything in Vista without affecting MS word. Another thing is that, as previously mentioned, though the cursor in word lengthens as font size increases, it also gets thinner as screen size increases.
Click on Vista Start button, and then select Control Panel. Select “Ease of Access”. On Easy of Access window, click “Optimize Visual Display”. Scroll to the section named “Make things on the screen easier to see” located at the bottom of the screen. Select a number in the box next to “Set the thickness of the blinking cursor” option. The default value is 1 and the larger the number, the thicker or fatter of the size of the cursor. There is preview available to determine what style fits you best.
