In most cases that little accessory that moves a cursor around the screen can be make essential in such everyday tasks like copying files, moving them or just opening a window, all in the shortest possible time. But what if the cursor suddenly freezes or disappears directly from the screen.
Normally when this happens we move the mouse quickly to relocate the cursor on the screen Or we usually move it to one of the corners to locate it in a fixed point, although if on the contrary there is a conflict this will not help.
The first point to check is of course the hardware of the mouse itself, checking if the connection is faulty and trying to test another (if we have one at hand) preferably connecting it via USB to rule out failures in the wireless connection. The disappearance of the mouse can also be due to the hiding of the cursor itself due to the application, that is, if we are viewing a video in full screen it is possible that certain programs hide the cursor and it will not be recovered when moving it, for this it will be enough to press CMD + Tab to switch to another application and try to "recover" it.
If this still doesn't work or the cursor still appears and disappears suddenly, then we can resort to the combination of CMD + Q and when it asks us if we want to close the program, we will, since it is possible that it is interfering in the same behavior of the mouse.
Finally, as a more "drastic" measure, we can leave pressed Control plus power button and then the space bar to choose to restart the computer and test if it has been a system failure at that time.
