Like its predecessors, Windows 10 also ships with a bunch of mouse points. While there is nothing wrong with the default black and white cursor, the cursor has not seen a major update for years. Because of this, many users are bored of the default cursor and want to replace the default one with a cool cursor.

Changing the size of the mouse pointer in Mac OS X 10.8 and beyond looks much more pleasant than before because you no longer end up with a giant pixelated cursor, instead you get a nice and smooth high-DPI rendered version that is appropriate for using larger cursors even on the ultra high resolution Retina displays. These newer high resolution versions carry across to almost all cursors in Mac OS X, from the normal mouse pointer to the hand cursors that show up when hovering over links.

Using multiple monitors. Most commonly, when you use multiple monitors, they are arranged improperly. So, when the mouse cursor disappears on Mac, it may simply be on another monitor and you do not see it.

The relevant tip is the black one, but zooming also affects the white border, so the bigger the cursor, the less precise you can work with it, since the white border hides the area where you want to click.
I can understand not seeing the cursor at the size it appears at a Mac's native screen size ( I prefer to increase the screen resolution instead to get bigger UI elements), but the there is nothing wrong with the OS X cursor's precision.
The issue is with the rendering of the arrow icon for the mouse cursor. The x,y click coordinate is at the tip of the inner black arrow, but there's a white arrow outside that obscures the surroundings of the black arrow.
At minimum size, the white arrow is only slightly bigger than the black arrow, so the problem isn't very noticeable. However, if you want to use a large cursor then the outer white arrow gets much bigger and the problem becomes a lot more apparent. If I want to click on a specific region that's only a few pixels wide, I can't do so with because I can't see that region because the white section of the cursor is blocking it. I can see with precision what the tip of the outer white pointer is pointing at, but that's not where the click happens, it happens at the tip of the black arrow that's inside of the cursor.

Officially, the macOS Human Interface Guidelines refers to it as the spinning wait cursor, but it is also known by other names. These include but are not limited to the spinning beach ball, the spinning wheel of death, the spinning beachball of death, or the Ferris wheel of death.
A wristwatch was the first wait cursor in early versions of the classic Mac OS. Apple's HyperCard first popularized animated cursors, including a black-and-white spinning quartered circle resembling a beach ball. The beach-ball cursor was also adopted to indicate running script code in the HyperTalk-like AppleScript. The cursors could be advanced by repeated HyperTalk invocations of "set cursor to busy".
Wait cursors are activated by applications performing lengthy operations. Some versions of the Apple Installer used an animated "counting hand" cursor. Other applications provided their own theme-appropriate custom cursors, such as a revolving Yin Yang symbol, Fetch's running dog, Retrospect's spinning tape, and Pro Tools' tapping fingers. Apple provided standard interfaces for animating cursors: originally the Cursor Utilities (SpinCursor, RotateCursor) and, in Mac OS 8 and later, the Appearance Manager (SetAnimatedThemeCursor).
NeXTStep 1.0 used a monochrome icon resembling a spinning magneto-optical disk.[a] Some NeXT computers included an optical drive which was often slower than a magnetic hard drive and so was a common reason for the wait cursor to appear.
When color support was added in NeXTStep 2.0, color versions of all icons were added. The wait cursor was updated to reflect the bright rainbow surface of these removable disks, and that icon remained even when later machines began using hard disk drives as primary storage. Contemporary CD Rom drives were even slower (at 1x, 150 kbit/s).[b]
With the arrival of Mac OS X the wait cursor was often called the "spinning beach ball" in the press, presumably by authors not knowing its NeXT history or relating it to the hypercard wait cursor.
Mac OS X 10.2/Jaguar gave the cursor a glossy rounded "gumdrop" look in keeping with other OS X interface elements.In OS X 10.10, the entire pinwheel rotates (previously only the overlaying translucent layer moved).With OS X 10.11 El Capitan the spinning wait-cursor's design was updated. It now has less shadowing and has brighter, more solid colors to better match the design of the user interface. The colors also turn with the spinning, not just the texture.
In single-task operating systems like the original Macintosh operating system, the wait cursor might indicate that the computer was completely unresponsive to user input, or just indicate that response may temporarily be slower than usual due to disk access. This changed in multitasking operating systems such as System Software 5, where it is possible to switch to another application and continue to work there. Individual applications could also choose to display the wait cursor during long operations (and were often able to cancel this display with a keyboard command).
After the transition to Mac OS X (macOS), Apple narrowed the meaning of the wait cursor. The display of the wait cursor was only able to be controlled by the operating system, not by the application. This could indicate that the application was in an infinite loop, or just performing a lengthy operation and ignoring events. Each application has an event queue that receives events from the operating system (for example, key presses and mouse button clicks); and if an application takes longer than 2 seconds to process the events in its event queue (regardless of the cause), the operating system displays the wait cursor whenever the cursor hovers over that application's windows. 2b1af7f3a8
