    Default Cursor changes shape from Arrow to Circle with an Up arrow & an arrow

    When I have opened a program like Edge on my Windows 10 PC, the cursor changes form from an arrow to a circle with an up arrow and an arrow down.

    This new symbol can not activate anything by moving it around with the mouse. To close the open program, press Ctrl + Alt + Del to get to the job list. At the same time, the circle symbol turns into the well-known arrow, and I can continue the work normally.

    How do I avoid the annoying circle icon?

    Boot in Clean Boot State and see if this still happens. Maybe some program is interfering with the normal functioning of the mouse. You will have to try and identify the probable cause. You can troubleshoot manually there. See Perform Clean Boot in Windows 10/8/7
