cursor disappears right of screen

As usual, I suspect I have a simple fix problem but I cannot find solution after some frustration spent trying to fix this.
When recording, the cursor disappears off the right of the screen, instead of staying visible where I can see it advancing , as the music is recorded.

As always, thanks in advance for your answers, and Merry Xmas to all.

oops- I forgot particulars - Win 10, newer HP laptop and latest version of Audacity

Perhaps you’ve enabled “pinned play head”, or disabled “Update display while playing”.
See here:

Normally, “pinned playhead” should NOT be enabled / selected, and “Update display while playing” SHOULD be enabled / selected.

YES ! That advice solves issue.
