How to stop blue circle from appearing behind my mouse when I move it

Giorgia Mitchell 5 Reputation points

Hi, I've been using my Asus Zenbook duo for around 3 months now and I have a recurring issue. If I move my mouse about too fast on the screen, a blue circle will start to pulse behind my mouse (not like a loading circle). This is especially frustrating when I am trying to play games as it involves a lot of fast movements which sets off this circle. I've looked everywhere to try and solve this issue and there seems to be nothing documenting it online. I've attached a screenshot below of what it looks like. Thanks! Screenshot 2023-09-06 170017

    Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    The cursor's blue circle denotes background processing. For instance, when you launch Edge, it starts some processes in the background to ensure peak performance, hence the circle. Rest assured that's fine and you don't need to do anything.

    then access the Control Panel. Uncheck the box next to "Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key" under the "Pointer Options" tab. For your computer to save the changes, click "Apply" and "OK."
