If you use discord it might work taking off the discord overlay. It worked for me Standard smile

I have a similar problem to this, but instead it stays at the small blue loading circle. It used to be the same problem, but then it turned into this...does anyone know how to fix that?

Re: Mouse Cursor (Sims 4)

Hi @SammiReid16 - Usually, if the mouse stops working on one portion of the screen it's because there's a notification underneath the game window waiting for a response. Try alt-tab to the desktop to see any notifications. You should be able to get rid of the problem by turning on focus assist. Go to Settings > System > Focus Assist (on the left hand bar). At the bottom of the settings, turn on "When I'm Playing a Game". Hope this helps!

This was the solution for me. Mouse is back to normal after turning off the option. Thank you because it was really bothering me.
