Mouse pointer disappears on quicken only

Just bought updated to windows 11 and got a quicken subscription. My mouse pointer works everywhere except over the quicken window. Tried sharing my screen with Quicken support and they can see my mouse pointer but I can't. Tried installing multiple times, and messing with mouse settings. Trying this on a Lenovo Yoga laptop. There is an old thread titled "Quicken wireless mouse pointer disappears and program freezes" but is was closed out without posting a solution. Any ideas?


  • Solved!!! My laptop is a 2-in-1 with touch screen. It has a permanently attached keyboard. Windows 11 got rid of the ability to turn on/off tablet mode. My machine was defaulting to tablet mode. I attached a wireless keyboard to turn off tablet mode. Problem solved. Everything works (touch screen, wireless mouse, attached keyboard, and wireless keyboard)

    That's great, but I don't have a wireless keyboard. Any other suggestions? Same problem. 2-in-1 laptop with windows 11.

    Well, it seems that simply rebooting solved my problem! Yay!
  • this happened to me today too, mouse wouldn't show in any of quicken screen --- but works in all other windows

    Same issue. Surface laptop (keyboard is not removable) and mouse pointer doesn’t show when using trackpad. Have been using the touchscreen as a work around but very cumbersome. Rebooting didn’t help. Any other ideas?

    I don't have a Surface laptop, just an old fashioned traditional laptop.
    Going into Control Panel / Mouse Properties under Pointer Options there are several options titled "Visibility". Have you experimented with enabling or disabling one or more of the available settings?
