Disable Mouse Pointer Shake Gesture in Mac OS X El Capitan [How-to]

The new feature of Mac OS X El Capitan to locate a mouse pointer is part of easy accessibility. But Apple has given us a window in case we don’t need it. Here we will guide you on how to disable this feature.

It has happened with almost all of us that we lose our cursor or rather say mouse pointer in a messy desktop. Finding a cursor is not like finding a lost treasure, but it definitely is an irritating situation. The new Mac OS X El Capitan has targeted the accessibility issues very well.

In the latest Mac OS X El Capitan, finding your cursor is like a piece of cake. Just shake your mouse rigorously and the pointer enlarges its size that cannot be ignored. On a Mac laptop, simply shake your fingers back and forth on trackpad to enlarge the pointer.

Now your mouse pointer won’t enlarge; you can also follow the same procedure if you wish to use this option once again in future. We don’t know whether it is a useful feature or not, but it certainly is fun doing it.
