Introduction: Custom PC / Windows Mouse Pointers
yet again another Instructable i thought id throw out there while at work ;)
SSSSsssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, it makes me look busy ahahah
Step 1: CUSTOM PC/LAPTOP MOUSE POINTERS
Offically my 2nd instructable,
While bored or uesing my time creativly lol at work I decided to personalise my work computer with a little flare
This can be added to most pc's and laptops running windows, note not sure on macs but sure it can be done
Step 2: Simples
I started my making a file to keep all the "pointers" safe on my PC in my documents or where ever you wish that's easy to access
Once done used the internet to search for pointers or cursors and came a cress this free site, simply search the thousands for your disired style......I went with anything comic and marvel based as that's the way I roll
Once found your wanted pointers simply download and save to your selected file
Note: some will have more than one for each type of pointer your computer uses, eg normal, busy, waiting, text, link and so forth I downloaded them all just in case but you can seller any you want
Step 3: Applying
Now go into you "display" icon on start screen this will be on the start menu on most computers and select the mouse option
Step 4: Applying Continued
Now you have the mouse file open you should see a scene like this all you need to do is click the pointer tab ( normally second in from left ) and you will see your standard pointers for each process
Step 5: Brouse....
Select the pointer you wish to change and click brouse, now it will take you to the standard file where all pointers are kept, ignore this and click my documents ( on the left of the box ) navigate through untill you find your file containing the disired pointers and choose and click
Step 6: Final Step
Now once click your pointer will be displayed in the box where the old while arrow or old pointer used to be, simply click apply and your done
Repeat for all the ones you wish to change and download as many as you wish from light sabres to minions
Should you mess up you can click the revert to standard button and put back to standard but that's no fun
We have a be nice policy.
