BigShot Screen Magnifier

A co-worker of mine gave me a trial version of BigShot to use. It's pretty good, though ZoomText gives you more obvious full control over your screen display. This program turns my mouse pointer arrow black, even though I prefer it white, and I can't see any obvious way to restore it to normal. As far as my Windows Control Panel is concerned, my mouse pointer is still set to 'normal,' so I'm not sure why this happened. BigShot just appears to do weird things with the pointer/cursor, regardless.

Still, I think the program is worth keeping simply because it magnifies some things that the Windows Accessibility settings don't necessarily magnify, nor do the browser text size settings. I have this for a 30-day trial period, so I'll see how it goes. Already, though, it is easier to read the screen on this computer.
