I recently purchased The Witcher: Enhanced Edition from Steam. I had played it a few times and everything was fine, but then one time when I started up the game my cursor disappeared on the main menu screen. I tried moving the mouse around everywhere and it didn't work. When I exit the game through the task manager my cursor is back and works fine. Any ideas for what is causing this or how to fix it?

It does it for me too. I think holding shift will bring your cursor back, but it's been a while since I've played. It's just a bug. – Fluttershy Jul 20 '12 at 2:26
That worked perfectly! Thanks! You can add an answer if you want so that I can accept it as the answer! – Kecoey Jul 20 '12 at 2:32

This is a minor bug that seems to be fairly common (or so it seemed when I had a similar issue).

Simply hold the Shift key while you are on the main menu and your cursor will reappear. If you let off of the Shift key at any time, the cursor will disappear and you will be locked in place in the menu.
