How to Change mouse pointer color in macOS?

In earlier versions of macOS, it was impossible to change the mouse pointer’s color or the (“cursor”). This has changed in macOS Monterey.

For most people, the black and white mouse pointer is the default and sufficient to clearly see where the cursor is on the screen.

However, this is different for people with visual impairments. That’s why Apple has made it possible to change the color of the cursor without the help of third-party software. Here’s how it works.
