Blue Circle - Can it be changed?

Strange request but does anyone know if there's a way to change the small
spinning blue circle that's displayed during logon, logoff, startup &
shutdown?

I assume you mean the spinning busy cursor, right?

There must be but I dont recall it. What are you looking for to replace it with?

Yes, the spinning round cursor thingy.

Replace it with the old hour glass or actually anything.

Thanks.

Hello SongKrai, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you can change this. It is the Busy and Working in background items in the Mouse Pointers settings.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you.

I did this and it was helpful. Thanks.

I am also wondering/asking if the blue/green circle at Windows start up and shut down can be changed? The donut ring or whatever it is called.

XP has a blue/green dotted bar that goes across screen at start up.

You're welcome Songkrai.

I'm not sure those can be changed at startup though.
