Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are
having problems with (if applicable).
: I was wondering if it's possible to implement a function that resizes and/or flashes the mouse pointer?

I've used triple monitors for some time now, and they've always been side-by-side and Windows has this annoying sticky corners or whatever you'd call it,
so sometimes the mouse pointer sticks there while you're clawing the crap out of the mouse on the mat and you just don't see the mouse pointer at first glance. :chaos:

However, this was something I've learned to live with and was easy to overcome. No biggie.
I just installed a fourth monitor which I have placed below the third (Order left->right), so it's not side-by-side, but diagonally,
in the corner slightly overlapping (Currently don't have space on the desktop, nor do I want the monitor standing besides the
3-way monitor arm), and this poses a very annoying problem as I need to traverse in an Z-shape pattern, and even if there's
a solution to this sticky problem, I'd like to be able to just wiggle the mouse to see a flashing or resized mouse pointer
(Without having to bind the shortcut Ctrl to display - This can be very annoying when actually using Ctrl with other combos).

I should also mention that the third monitor is rotated 90° so there's a height gap for the middle and the below screen.

Would of course need to be able to omit this function in certain apps and games as this potentially could disturb things perhaps?
Possibly it can be added to "Application / Windows Profiles" with a simple checkbox.
