Audacity is a free to use project and all the developers are volunteers.

So unfortunately, no.

I have the same issue. The multi-tool cursors are miniscule. I am using Audacity 2.2.2 on Windows 10. Laptop has 13" screen and is connected to a 19" monitor. Using the larger monitor does not help me see the multi-tool cursors. The size of the arrow cursor is just fine. The multi-tool cursors get a little larger if I change screen resolution from 3200x1800 (recommended) to 1280x1024. The downside, of course, is a reduction in what I can see on the screen. I don't see a place to change dpi. BTW, cursor size was also an issue with the previous version of Audacity. Do you have any ideas about what I can try? Should I use a larger monitor? a larger laptop?
I love Audacity, but the tiny cursors are very frustrating.
Thanks.

We are aware that there are problems with high dpi monitors. Audacity is not dpi aware, and until it is there will be no solution to this problem.
We welcome contributions from software developers to improve Audacity.
