Two quick questions about cursors and start orbs...

Does anyone use different cursors? I'm using the default cursor theme and it works for me but I'd like to change it if anyone can find some thing good.

I'd also like to ask if anyone can make custom start orbs? I'd like the normal one but in black and white. I'd do it myself, but I'm not sure how and am scared I'll screw something up.

For changing cursors, the most popular way is cursor fx .... a stardock product. You can download a lot of cursor FX themes from wincustomize.org.

For start buttons, you may request here : Custom Start Menu Button Collection

Sorry Jaidin I forgot to mention that CursorFX is not free . There is a free alternative, CursorXP. All the CursorXP themes work on CursorFX, but in CursorXP, CursorFX themes dont work .

Changed my cursor after a very long gap .... applied this one .

Thanks Arc. Unfortunately, that particular thread doesn't have what I'm looking for. Thanks anyway, I'll keep snooping.
