    change or override default 32x32 mouse pointer size limit


    I am visually impaired and am looking for a way to change or override the default 32x32 mouse pointer size limit either through Registry settings, Group Policy or through a setting in God Mode. Is there anyone who can help? I know there is some way to create pointer/cursor size schemes that show larger even in Windows 10 as I have some VERY large installable cursor schemes they are called Phillip's Large Colored Cursors. I have tried editing & increasing the size of the .cur & .ani files themselves but they will still not DISPLAY at the actual size because of the 32x32 default size limit in 10. I will be very greatful to anyone who can help.

    Philip's Large Coloured Cursors
    I checked the name in a Search, not much help there:
    Please note: Due to a change in circumstances and work commitments, I am unable to offer any support with my cursors. They remain available for all to download.
    This page may have some resources, looks like it's an Oklahoma Government site, probably will work on Win10:

    Thank you very much for the quick reply. I'm sorry but, I should have mentioned that I had tried contacting him & got the same response. I was really just using that as an example of cursors that are somehow able to override the limit. I have downloaded the PDF you shared & will be contacting whoever I can from there to find out what I can do to override the settings so I can use the custom cursors I have collected &/or made that I just don't see as well anymore. Thank you again & have a blessed day.

    Someone with some programming skills could make a background program which draws a bigger cursor over your cursor's display position...
