Ever since a couple days ago, when I try to play minecraft fullscreen, this strange icon appears in the middle of the screen:

enter image description here

It captures the mouse events and bumps back to the desktop. Both right and left clicks.

What is it, how can I get rid of it?

No software or mods were installed after Minecraft. Running vanilla 1.8.8

  • Are there any other people using your computer? They might know what this is – Lars Aug 29 '15 at 14:16
  • @Lars nope, single user. Also, I am off the internet on the minecraft PC – Mindwin Aug 29 '15 at 14:18

    That looks like the icon that comes from using the scroll wheel (or any scroll function) on a mousepad.. :P – aytimothy Aug 29 '15 at 15:46

That pointer is a sideways-scrolling pointer for OPs notebook touch pads, a "Lenovo Pointing Device" by ELAN *ETD0613.

Updating the touchpad driver can solve the issue.

  • This is what I was going to suggest. Looks like it could be some kind of accessibility for disabled users as well. – Tim S. May 4 '16 at 18:08
