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.
