    Default mouse pointer goes away when alt tabbing from game

    so i like this game im playing. but i also like the ability to go back to my desktop and do other stuff with alt tab. but when i do the mouse pointer just isnt visible. it disappears until i exit the game. which is all i do to bring it back. is there another way to pop back the pointer so i can continue alt tabbing and do stuff while playing the game? thanks for the help

    The only thing I can think of is that it's by design ... other programs cannot run while the game is loaded. Stay tuned for others advice.
