    I get two color choices black or the clear/white. This doesn’t help. I want a neat color like my “PURPLE”.

    Thanks. Before I changed the mouse curse, I got a disaster that my logitech mouse was quiting working in my Windows 10 for few days. I tried to change a new mouse and plug to another USB port. Useless… After I updated the mouse driver with OSToto Driver Talent and my mouse works again. Now I have changed the mouse pointer colour and it seems more lovely. Thank you.
