Windows 8.1 - How to enable the pointer shadow

As you will notice Windows 8.1 doesn't apply the usual shadow effect under the mouse cursor. So here's to get it back:
  • Open the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers > Mouse
  • Go the Pointers tab.
  • Tick the Enable pointer shadow checkbox.
  • Click on Apply > Ok.
