    Custom cursors reset after reboot

    I applied the old Windows Vista/7 cursors and everytime I reboot it uses the Windows 10 sets even though it's still shows Windows Aero is applied. Why? Is there a cache or something I need to deal with?

    Probably because of Theme applied, Save the theme with those cursors applied and use it as default.

    I had already done that I believe. Regardless I deleted and moved the actual files to the Windows/Cursors folder re-added and saved as a different name. Hopefully this will help.

    It's because I didn't have them in Windows/Cursors but rather my Downloads folder. Thanks.
