The Wait for Pointer action is used to pause the task until a certain type of mouse pointer appears. You could use it, for example, to wait until the busy or working in background pointer disappears or until the link pointer appears.
From the Task Builder Available Actions pane, open the Wait folder and double-click the Wait for Pointer action or drag it into the Steps pane.
In the Action box, select the action. The options are:
Wait for pointer to match: The pointer must match one of the selections made in the Pointer(s) to wait for box.
Wait for pointer to differ from: The pointer must not match any of the pointers selected in the Pointer(s) to wait for box.
Wait for pointer to change: The pointer must change to any pointer other than the current pointer at the time the step begins. If this is selected, the Pointer(s) to wait for box does not apply.
In the Pointer(s) to wait for box, select the pointer or pointers to wait for. To select more than one pointer, use CTRL+click.
To set the Description tab properties, refer to Description Tab Options.
