Mouse hide and show



  • Hi,

    I have read that i can install unclutter and then disable the mouse-cursor.

    But after the mousepointer has gone, how can i reactivate the mouse-coursor without the mouse??

    Assuming you are controlling the mirror remotely. When the mirror is running:

    • Press the Alt key (or Ctrl) on your keyboard. This drops down a menu bar at the top of your screen.

    • You won’t see your mouse cursor until you move it all the way to the top of the screen into the menu bar.

    • There it is! Click on the File menu and click Exit. This brings you back to your desktop.
