How to install and use

custom Windows cursors

by dpcdpc11

Introduction

Your mouse cursor plays an important role when using your computer. But, after a while, it might get boring looking at the same pointing arrow all day long. Luckily, in Windows, it's really easy to install and use custom cursors. For this reason, I've made this quick guide so you can properly enjoy my creations.
But before we move on with the guide, I want to explain a few concepts to make sure we're on the same page.
So what is a cursor? A mouse cursor is that little icon on your screen that you use to interact with your operating system. In Windows this is also called a pointer but we're going to use the term "cursor" because it's more popular.
What is a cursor scheme? As you may have noticed, the mouse cursor changes from a simple arrow to various icons like a pointy hand or a vertical line, depending on your interaction with the operating system. The set of all the cursors used at once makes up a cursor scheme.
To use custom cursors you can either replace them one by one or install an entire scheme. In this guide we'll be focusing on how to install and use an entire cursor scheme.
