Hey, as of this morning my cursor point on MS Word only (the flashing "I" thing) is really REALLY small. Any idea on how I change it back to its proper size?

Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Mouse and, from the Pointer tab, configure as required (this is for XP, presume similar for Vista).

..after Mouse>Properties...:-)

Use the View-Zoom dialogue (not the drop-down zoom) then zoom to 500%, after entering OK zoom back to 100% click OK. The cursor should then be back to normal size, hopefully.

Or, if that does not work perhaps a System Restore back to yesterday.

Thanks so much - now resolved!

Grreat. Thanks for your feedback, but it would be most helpful to others, possibly with the same 'problem', if you could say How?

For others with this problem, please note that the solution suggested by Technotiger, i.e. resolving the problem within MS Word by using the View-Zoom dialogue, is the one that has just worked for me - thanks!
