Registry Editing Tips

Change Cursor Blink Rate

Is your cursor blinking too fast or too slow? Or you want to set the cursor to "no blinking"? Then we have just the solution for you. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop\ On the right had pane, search for a string value called CursorBlinkRate. If the string value is not present, create on with the name CursorBlinkRate. Modify, numeric value to the required speed. We are not so sure of the default value, maybe between 200-400. But we do know that if you set the value to -1, the cursor won't blink at all! Note: This setting only apply on text or word processors, Explorer and Windows apps only. It won't effect the MS-DOS mode box cursor.
