Stop the Blinking Cursor in Windows 8

Hi,


How do I disable the Blinking Cursor in Windows 8?  

In previous versions of Windows I could just change cursorBlinkRate to -1 in  regedit, but that doesn't work in Win 8.  It blinks in Notepad, Word, etc. (yes, I rebooted :)

How do I disable this thing I hate?

Thanks!

Hope this solution work for you.

Just turn off the caret browsing using the below steps -

1. Point to the top-right/bottom corner of the screen and click Settings from the panel that appears.

2. Click Change PC settings from the next panel, go to Ease of Access and turn off Tab through webpages and apps using caret browsing.

3. Go to Start menu, open any app and verify.

Hi,


I'm afraid I don't see "Tab through webpages and apps using caret browsing" anywhere under Ease of Access.  Are you certain that's where it is?

Thanks
