I wanted to enlarge the Windows 7 Pro cursor so I went to the Web to find out how to enlarge the cursor but mostly I found the same instructions to go to Control Panel/Mouse/Pointers/Scheme and from there the size and style of the cursor can be selected. The largest I could choose was the “Windows Inverted (extra large) (system scheme)”. I normally go with the black but this time I went with the Inverted because it changes color opposite of what it is hovering over.
There are software programs to download to make your own but Windows will resize them to 64x64. Cursors can be downloaded and saved in C:/Windows/Cursors as .cur and .ani.
A downloaded cursor can be slightly larger than a Windows cursor. They can come in all colors, shapes and subjects and some I found change colors. Some cursors are free to download and others must be purchased for a modest price.
One way to make a cursor seem larger is to change the screen resolution to a lesser size. That will make the cursor larger but everything else becomes larger and the relative size of the cursor remains the same.
After a cursor is downloaded to the Windows/Cursor folder, it can become usable by going to Mouse Properties/Pointers/Customize/Browse and choose the cursor from the list in the Cursors folder and in Scheme/Save As…, type in its name and it will be in the drop down list forever.
My favorite now is "3D Animated" that blinks different three colors, green, red, and yellow.
