    How do I egt rid of the mouse pointer.I went into the mouse properties, but there's only an option to hide the pointer when I am typing.But this doesn't actually work anyway.

    I'm using the keyboard on the desktop I'm on now, as the mouse is disconnected.

    Would I have to uninstall the mouse in order to remove the pointer from appearing?
    The only reason why i don't want to do this is ebcause if I decide to use the mouse again, I'll have to install it, which is a hassle.

    So I'm after a way of hiding the pointer until I need it.

    Anyone know, as there's nothing in the mouse properties.

    How about taking the mouse pointer into the bottom right hand corner - this makes the pointer disappear and you just move the mouse diagonally left and up and it re-appears.

    Yeah I'd considered this, but just thought there might be some sort of command/keyboard shortcut, whatever that could make the pointer disappear and reappear.

    There's an idea for any budding proggers out there.

    I better just remember that if I'm going to disconnect the mouse, I'd better make sure that I move the pointer to the bottom first.

    Thanks Rosy.
