Is it possible to change cursor colour when certain background and font colours are used?
Cursor is barely visible under some conditions.

Here it's visible because this message system enlarges pictures. I find it very difficult to locate cursor on my screen, especially on blue background.
Thickening cursour with one more pixel would also help, I think.

Selected text could also be better shown:

Middle row, middle "Test" is selected.

You can change the cursor thickness in windows "Settings "  and then " Ease of Access " .As far as i known the colour selection for the selected text and cursor is hardcoded into the RichEdit control and changes with the background in some way .....

Thanks for reply. I think I just swallow this with stickies then. I don't want OS wide fat cursors.

Stickies uses a MS library to handle the text entry, and the cursor is provided by that library (Rich Edit).  It doesn't expose everything for change - the colour of the hyperlinks is the thing I'd really like to be able to alter - but to change that I'd have to write the library from scratch (or perhaps appeal to MS to ask them to add the feature to the library!)
