Engineers solve problems. They right wrongs. They discover problems users are facing and they attack them with the tenacity of a dozen rat terriers. All this to say the engineers working non-stop at Microsoft on Windows 10 have left no stone unturned and will finally be straightening the mouse cursor.
Since the beginning of the Windows mouse cursor users have been confused as to why the cursor is at an odd angle. The indicator should be an X or crosshair to ensure precision. But instead we’ve dealt with this garbage angled polygon for decades.
The pain will end soon. Uncovered in preview builds, it seems that Microsoft will straighten the cursor as God intended. This new cursor will be familiar but feel more natural and at least one hundred times more intuitive. Hopefully we will all soon be able to try out this new feature in the coming eons.
I work as an engineer in Milwaukee. Currently I work on a few different UWP apps primarily Ink Calendar.
