But my arrow doesn't disappear with the stick.
It is possible to have the stick without original pointer with some effect for every cursor? Like normal, text, link cursor etc.

Yes agreed would be more useable if the original arrow was to disappear whilst the stick was on show. I do however like software by this guy, and couldnt live without "always mouse wheel" which is what microsoft should have originally had.

Since I don't see as good as I once did (old eyes)I'm always interested in a way to make a pointer BIGGER. Thanks.

Absolutely a must-have if you are in a place with a changing light setting or you need to be moving your laptop frequently. The access to brightness and volume in the notification area is definitely something I can't lose again. Also, the automatic start at a lower light level has saved me loads of battery since I installed it. Some of the advanced tools and functions aren't super clear, but the basic tools are easy and effective.
