    This does not change the mouse. It only changes the cursor color at the command line. It has nothing to do with the color of the mouse.

    This has nothing to do with Mouse Pointer Color. It is the cursor color not the pointer.

    Do this:
    control panel > Mouse > Change how the mouse pointer looks > from “Scheme” Pulldown Menu select “Windows Inverted (extra large) (system scheme)” > Apply and OK.

    You can play with the options at “Scheme” Pulldown Menu and see different pointers.
