At 83 my eyes are so poor I have great difficulty in locating the cursor. Doesn't anyone in this wide world make a GIANT cursor that blinks very rapidly a brilliant white and red alternately?  Just point me to it, please.

    Hi Jim - sorry you're having a hard time seeing the cursor.  I was surprised that Windows didn't have what you were looking for "GIANT cursor that blinks".  I was able to find a site that seems to offer what you requested.  The link included takes you to the install and intruction page.  Please let me know if this didn't meet your needs.  Good luck!

    Hi Jim - I was so eager to send the reply that I clicked too soon without including the link.  Here it is:

    My original error was that I Goggled for "Blinking" cursors instead of "cursor editors." Which I did after I had posted the question. Found several places to do that, but your link looks promising. One of the example cursors blinks but rather slowly. I'll try to speed it up. Yes, it's hell to be nearly blind but comes with the territory. Old age, that is.  Thank you for the assistance. Jim.
