How to Change Your Mouse Cursor on a Chromebook

Chromebooks come with a standard pointer cursor, but if you are looking for something more interesting, you can easily change the color of the cursor, size, or even replace it with a special image, either in original or through a third-party application. Let’s get started.

Method 1 – Change your cursor from Settings

You can make some basic adjustments such as resizing the cursor, color, or even highlighting the color with a circle, using the default Chromebook settings. To change it, you can open Chromebook settings.


Now click Advanced in the left sidebar and scroll down to the bottom of the settings page and select the option called “Manage accessibility features”


Now again scroll down to the bottom complete to find an option called “Play Sound on Startup” and activate it. That’s all, now you can restart your Chromebook to check the startup sound.


It is just a beep and if you are not satisfied with the original bells that you get, then you can check the alternatives

Startup Chime uses Extensions

To get various sound options, open the Chrome web store, search for “opening sound for Chromebook” and select extensions from BrowserNative. Or, you can also click on this link. Now click the “Add to Chrome” button and click the “Add extension” button in the pop-up that appears to install the extension in Chrome.


Once installed, you will be directed to a window that says thank you, and the start-up sound will default to the Ubuntu Start-up sound. But you can change it by going to the Startup voice extension settings. To open extension settings, click the extension icon in the upper right corner.


Now, click on the three dot menu next to the Startup sound extension. Now select “options” in the menu that appears.


Now you can choose a startup chime between 6 different sounds like Ubuntu, Windows XP, Windows 3.1, MacOS, Windows 98, Windows Me. If you are a previous Windows or Mac user, you can choose those options for nostalgia. However, you can listen to the sound here by clicking the play button after selecting the sound.


Once selected, click on Save and restart your device. The only warning is that you get a bell when you enter the system rather than on the lock screen. However, the sound felt natural and not from that place.
