Have you ever experienced an issue in finding the text cursor in the middle of a large amount of text in the text editor such as Notepad, Microsoft Word and the like?  The newer version of Windows 10 has come with a new and handy feature called Text Cursor Indicator.

This feature helps the computer users to spot the text cursor easily and quickly while creating a document in a text editor like Notepad, Microsoft Word, WordPad or other open-source text editors. The new Accessibility option (Text Cursor Indicator) is an attempt to improve cursor visibility in Windows 10. 

Moreover, the new text cursor indicator also works well with all types of web browsers in locating the text cursor to make your surfing experience better on the web. 

By default, the blinking text cursor line is very small in size at the end of what you are typing. Apart from this, the blinking pointer is a very thin line and it is not visible properly and due to this, some users have an issue in locating the text cursor line while creating a document on the small-screen desktop.

To end the text cursor issue and make it easier to see your text cursor, Microsoft has incorporated a new Text Cursor Indicator in Windows 10 which shows a coloured indicator at the top and bottom of the blinking text cursor. 

If you want to use the text cursor indicator feature then you must have windows 10 version 1930 or higher installed.
