notebook interface: how make the cursor to be a 'block' cursor instead of the default?


When starting Mathematica notebook, the cursor (the position on the screen) 
where the mouse is, has the shape   '|'

I want to change this to be a block, like a little black square so it is 
easier to see.

I used to do this using emacs editor for example on vt100 compatible 
monitors and such, but can't seem to find how to do this with Mathematica 
notebook interface.

I spend too much time searching for the cursor between all those solid 
brackets on the screen and I would like it to be more easily located :)
