Is there a way to make the cursor disappear while I type?
It depends on which cursor.

The mouse pointer (which is often appears as a cursor) is typically controlled
by the mouse settings in control panel. Exactly how varies depending on the manufacturer
of your mouse, but for example on my machine (with a Microsoft Bluetooth wireless
mouse) it’s in Control Panel, Mouse,
Pointer Options tab. In
there is a checkbox for Hide pointer while typing.
I’ve not been able to find an option to make the system cursor (also known
as a caret) disappear while typing.
