How to make sketch cursor cross + larger?

I am on a 50 inch monitor at 3840 x 2160 and when sketching the black cross cursor is about 2 mm high on the screen.
How can the size be increased?  Can cursor color be changed?
Thank for any help.

    Hi - cursor size is controlled in your operating system settings

    Hi Neil,
    Thanks for your reply.  But the black cross + does not change when I change my cursor size.  It is always small.
    I have attached screenshots of Onshape with a cursor size of 16  and a size of 72.
    Images numbered 1 2 3 4 are a cursor size 16.  Note the small mouse pointers and small black cross +.

    Images 5 6 7 8 9 are cursor size 72.  Note the cursors are all large but the black cross + remains the same small size.

    Thank you,

    Please open a support ticket about this and somebody will take a look. Any reason why you are running the 5K screen at 5K? I see you have zoomed the browser, but in the meantime it may help to reduce the screen resolution.
