When writing something or doing some other work in a sea of text, finding the cursor on your PC may get challenging. The default cursor is not useful when working on the text because it can get lost in the text on your laptop’s screen. This may be a problem if you are habitual of working on a big screen. To overcome this problem, Windows 11 comes with a Text cursor indicator.

When you are typing, this text indicator cursor shows a colored indicator at the top and bottom of the text cursor. Usually, when typing, the default cursor is a blinking line at the end of the text when you are typing, which may be difficult to spot. However, the text indicator cursor makes it easier for one to spot where the text cursor is.
