Fix That Obnoxious Blinking Cursor





Years ago I wrote a utility called NoBlink Accelerator for Windows. If you are like me, you will want to stop the constant blinking cursor so you can concentrate on the subject. 👀  


Here's the fix for any Mac including one running Big Sur:

Open Terminal and enter these commands:

defaults write -g NSTextInsertionPointBlinkPeriod -float -1

defaults write -g NSTextInsertionPointBlinkPeriodOn -float 4000

defaults write -g NSTextInsertionPointBlinkPeriodOff -float 100


This should work on most Mac OS Applications.


......


Here's the fix in Windows


In keyboard properties, adjust the slider of Text Cursor blink rate as per your choice.























Please post comments if you have any other cursor ideas
