ms-settings:easeofaccess-cursorandpointersize no longer works in 21H1, anyone know the new name?

I have students that we set Group Policy restrictions and allow access to specified settings.

For our visually impaired students, we enable them to change the cursor size.

In Win 10 1909, ms-settings:easeofaccess-cursorandpointersize worked fine. I've seen posts indicating version 2004+ the URI was changed to ms-settings:easeofaccess-MousePointer . (Canonical name was required from an evil dev. )

Now we are actively pushing out Win 10 21H1 and neither of these options work, in both policy and attempting to run the URI in general.

Anyone know the updated name as I suspect its name was changed again in 21H1?

Update

I suspected it may have been a bug, on an interesting note I was doing testing on the August and September monthly patches for Win 10.

For whatever reason, installing the following patches allowed the GPO to take effect correctly.

Very strange, considering RSOP showed the GPO's were in effect prior to the patch installing.

Perhaps this was a bug corrected that I don't see in any patch notes.

If anyone is interested in the specific KB's, should it happen to you. (Yes, KB5005033 is superseded by KB5005565 so you should only need the three)

 2021-08 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64 (KB5004331)
 2021-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64-based Systems (KB5005033)
 2021-08 Servicing Stack Update for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64-based Systems (KB5005260)
 2021-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64-based Systems (KB5005565)

We delayed these updates due to the PrintNightmare problem that was introduced by the "Fix" in these monthly cumulatives.

Thank you for the update.
Could you run a test and try open it from the client (not using the GPO) and see if the problem persist?
