I'm assuming he means he tried making a thread, but the mouse disappeared when he did so.

Have you tried going to settings > mouse and then choosing a large mouse cursor? I don't know the exact location for ubuntu, but I would suspect it's under Settings or a synonym of Settings.

to clarify

the first thread i tried to send just disappeared off the screen. i was then left with a new clear screen and could not get the text back.

So this thread regarding the mouse pointer size was more for my benifit, just to see if i could type it, then, send it without it disappearing.

the mouse pointer is tiny by default WHY?

the scroll bars at the side of the window are tiny by default WHY?

It is not neccessary to be so accurate with the mouse.

the radio buttons are tiny WHY?

why am i scolling down this window?

Why doesn't the window fill the screen?
