After a lot of "tweaking", I finally solved this problem. Did some experiments with my system Display settings,(Windows 10 64 bit) and lowered the "SCALE" settings from 125% to 100% (the recommended setting) which made the text (font) and my desktop icons as well, smaller.I then restarted the game, and everything is now "working" perfectly, including that zoom-out cursor. If anybody else playing this game is experiencing this problem, I hope they see this thread. Oh yes, one other thing: In the Compatibility settings, make sure that "Disable full screen optimizations" is CHECKED, or else you will get some of the screen not visible. HAPPY GAMING!
