Remove mouse and click highlighting

Remove mouse and click highlighting

After you make a recording you'll notice in the playback that there is a yellow circle (halo) around the mouse as it moves and that there are flashes of blue or red when you click the mouse.

There are two ways you can remove or modify the cursor halo and highlighting.


Editing the recording

When you click Edit for the screen recording, you will notice a Cursor control under Show on the right side of the Video Editor.


You can clear the checkbox next to Cursor to remove it completely from your recording. You can also click  to display options for which mouse actions to display in your recording and which color the halo will be.




Change the Cursor option before publishing

You can also change certain cursor options right before you publish your recording to Screencast-O-Matic or another platform.

When selecting your publishing options, click Cursor.


You can then choose Highlight Cursor, Just Cursor (to display the mouse pointer with no highlight), or No Cursor.
