OS X Mavericks doesn't provide many options to change your mouse cursor. Change the cursor's size using the Accessibility options. If you want something more, you'll need to look to third-party apps to change color and style or add effects.

Step 1

Select "System Preferences" from the Apple menu.

Step 2

Click "Accessibility" and choose "Monitor" from the panel.

Step 3

Drag the "Cursor Size" slider to the left to make the mouse cursor smaller or to the right to make it larger.


Use third-party software, such as PinPoint, Mousepose and iCursor (links in Resources) to change other aspects of your mouse cursor.
