Microsoft Surface Studio

I'm using TC Platinum on a MS Studio and the cursor, snap aperture, and cross hairs are extremely diffult to see.  Any ideas on how to increase the cursor visibility on a high resolution display would be greatly appreciated.

Try "Cursor & pointer" in Windows "Settings". It has a "Thickness" slider. Maybe that will help.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I tried it, but it only affects the cursor in Windows.

Try this: Press the Windows "Start" key and type "Mouse properties." When the dialog opens, click "additional mouse options" and look at what's available in the "Pointers" tab.

Tried that, it only affects the mouse cursor in Windows.
I did find that there are 3 options for the display colour profile:
DCI-P3 - whatever that is
sRGB
Vivid, which seems to be the default.
I set it to sRGB, which did make a small difference to the cursor visibility.

If you can't adjust the thickness, then perhaps you could experiment with the colors used to make them more noticeable.  I found this under Program Setup.

In my Win 10 Pro installation, "change pointer size" affects all programs.

Thanks Henry H, I appreciate that, but I like to use the TurboCAD cross hairs pointer with snap aperture, which, unfortunately doesn't seem to be customisable.  The sRGB option in the display adapter settings improves the visibility slightly.  I also work with a line thickness of 0.5mm which greatly improves the visibility of objects, but has the downside of sometimes leaving a trail across the screen when you move an object using the mouse to click and drag.
