Windows 11 Issue with Pointer

New Contributor

Hello, I recently updated to Windows 11 on my HP Pavillion 15-cc6xx. Since then I've been facing a persistent issue with my pointer. The pointer changes to the loading icon (blue ring) over a particular region of my screen (the bottom mid-left) and I cannot select any elements that appear over that region. The region is constant and the problem is across any and all windows I may have open. I have to resize my window and move the window to a different portion of my screen to be able to select the elements. I've rebooted my system multiple times but the problem persists. It's been roughly 5 days. Please let me know what the issue may be/ if there is anything I can do.


Thank you!

I was able to fix the issue by restarting the Windows Explorer background process through the Task Manager.
