My Big Picture Cursor switches from Pointer to Directional status intermittantly

Hi there folks,

Sometimes in Big Picture my Cursor switches functions and I can't figure out how to get it back, outside of closing the Apps and starting again.

How do I get it back to the Pointer again ?

You can see in the picture, it's changed to a Directional Icon.

Oh my gosh,

I was hitting different key sequences and playing with my mouse.

I've just figured out how to change it.


I have a Microsoft Mouse with three buttons on top.

( The scroll wheel acts like a middle Button )

When I click that, the cursor changes function back and forth.


Finally I've discovered the answer.
