    Have you installed any new software or made any changes before noticing this issue? If yes then uninstall that particular software or undo your changes. It will fix your issue.The disappearence of mouse can be due to many reasons. However the most common is pressing the "hide the pointer key" i.e Fn+F7 key. If you have pressed it by mistake then press it(Fn+F7) again. It will bring the mouse pointer back on your screen. So many people has fixed this issue by doing the same.Just give it a try. If you are getting any other error message or something like that then feel free to post your questions in this forum.

    Troubleshoot:

    :: Open the window charm and type the "mouse".

    :: Then open the mouse section from the settings section.

    :: Now under it select the mouse pointer from the upper tap.

    :: Here you see the visibility section where you unchecked box in the display segment.

    :: Else you can reinstall the mouse touch pad pointer from the hardware section.

    :: This will fix the issue.


    Done

    Multiple reasons are responsible for the situation.

    Pressing the fn key + F7 can lead the system to hide the mouse pointer, press fn+F8 again to activate the pointer.

    Some program installation can hide the pointer due to its installed program interference, you need to uninstall that program if that is the case.

    You may think anout installing the mouse driver again.
    in Start, type devmgmt.msc, press enter, click Mice......., Driver, uninstall and exit.
    Tye windows will automatically install another driver for mouse in the system.
    You can install mouse driver from the companion disk too if you have it with you.

    Those can solve your problem for sure.
