How can I change my default cursor in Windows Vista?

Anonymous January 14, 2014

I successfully downloaded and saved a new cursor scheme, applied it and it works great, but every time I start up my computer it defaults to the original Windows Aero ( Vista OS). How can I make it stick?

    Start > "Search" Mouse > Pointers
    Then you select what cursor you want.

    I assume you selected the theme from the menu in the "Mouse Properties" control panel and clicked OK. Did you get any errors at that stage?

      I just moved the downloaded cursor scheme into the "Cursors" subfolder. I'm sure that was the problem! Thank you for quick and easy fixes! :-)
