    Thanks, George. Gotta get me feets onna ground before going full steam ahead. I'll download 'em as soon as I put my external drive back on the desktop, which shares it with Teaching Lappy.
    Sounds like a plan.

    If it's any consolation.
    I've been using the Geo Blue cursor package since I created it.
    Used it with Win XP, 7, 8.1 and now with Win10.

    I've also made individual cursors.

    There are 7 (seven) cursors in this package,
    4 (four) of them can be seen in the preview image.
    The 4 (four) spaceships in the preview image,
    look different on light colored screens as well as on darker colored screens.
    Also, as you move them from darker areas into lighter areas of the screen and vice versa.
    They seem to take on a different appearance.

    Note: The preview image has been enlarged,
    to give a better view of the cursors.
    The cursors are the "standard" size of 32x32.
    I have not provided an installation file,
    so these cursors have to be installed individually.
    All of the cursors were designed using Gimp.

    Good morning, Horace.

    I've downloaded and extracted the purple cursors, so now I have three extracted folders. When I put them in "C:\Windows\Cursors" do I open the folders and "throw the individual files in" with everything else in the folder? Or do I just move the whole folder in?

    It's taking me a long time to get this done; I have to "study long" before I do anything.

    Thanks in advance.
    Hi Wynona,

    Sorry for the late reply.
    It's exactly what Cliff mentioned.
    I've provided installer files (inf) on most cursor packs.

    Sometimes there are some extra files that might not be installed automatically, for instance some of those LLX themes have alternative cursors that aren't used. Those extra files are not added by the installer and are not used by the theme either. It's OK, extras can be copied manually in cursor folder and a manual modification of the cursor scheme or saving a new cursor scheme can be done, optionally, to use the extra files.

    In case of the Aero Purple scheme: the installer will install all the files since there are no alternative pointers or spinners included, as I recall.

    Cheers!

    Here's a cursor pack,
    that I put together about 5 years ago.
    It comes with an installer .inf file.

    Well @Hopachi it looks like you can at least take it easy with the custom Windows default cursor colors after the May 2019 upgrade
    Ease of access/vision/Cursor and Pointer lets you customize quite a bit now!

    @Cliff S
    That's exactly what I was thinking about!

    I just installed the upgrade and got to play with this; really nice how it can blend any color and even switch between dark or light edges depending on the selected color. Congrats to the dev team working on this one.

    Fun fact:
    Classic cursors are still useful: if you need them in extra large, make use of the new pointer size options.

    If you change the pointer size to something different than 1, you can increase the size of any pointer scheme.
    After you change the size, go to classical cursor scheme options and change cursor scheme there; apply.

    The cursor schemes with many layers in high DPI, for instance the LLX themes, or Delta45, can be seen bigger and use the new size options from 1903.
    You can go up to size 9 with LLX , for example red one... and you get a huge cursor that is still sharp looking.
