I am sure this has happened to you as well, and luckily, there is a way to fix this issue. This tutorial will show you how to hide your cursor while typing on Windows 11 systems.

If the cursor mustn’t disrupt your view while typing, you can tweak the settings a little bit. You can use any of the following methods, depending on what you need.
