Lost Your Pointer on a Big Screen? Here’s How to Find It.

A big Mac screen is great for productivity because you can see a lot at once—in fact, some people even connect more than one monitor to a single Mac! But it can be easy to lose the tiny pointer arrow in all that screen acreage. Starting in macOS 10.12 Sierra, Apple included a feature that helps you find a missing pointer by enlarging it briefly—just shake your mouse back and forth horizontally a few times. The same trick works with a trackpad—just slide your finger back and forth quickly.
