Its the curser too... but sometimes called the caret.


gah, why do I retain useless information but cant remember things I need to?

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

umm i believe its called a cursor... the mouse is a pointing device, and the little hand or whatever icon you choose that shows where its at on the computer screen is also referred to as a cursor
