The advantage to having multiple displays on your Mac is obvious. The extra screen real estate is addictive. But having an extra display connected to your iMac or a display connected to a MacBook carries with it a downside.
Where’s the cursor?
iMac or MacBook, the screen pointer (in the age of trackpads, the mouse cursor is so 1999) can get lost among a window full of application windows. Here’s the easiest way I know to find it.
Hit the keyboard shortcut (there’s one for each display) and the screen pointer floats to the center of the selected display.
If you were hoping for more features don’t feel let down. Yeah, there’s no more features. But CatchMouse is free, and it works very well on Macs with multiple displays.
You can control the keyboard shortcuts for each display, though, and there’s a click setting to zoom the cursor. Uh, sorry. Screen pointer. CatchMouse won’t take up valuable space in the Dock.
Finding the Mac’s screen pointer on a large external display, or a connected display on a MacBook– even when cluttered with app windows– is easy when you know exactly where it will be.
