Full Screen Crosshair (+) WITH x-hair Cursor

I am looking for a windows utility that will make the windows mouse pointer (cursor) a full screen crosshair (+) with 45 degree diagonals (X). I located 2 apps that produce the (+), but I require a full screen cursor that includes the (X) ... (i.e. that appears as one would manually draw an asterisk).

-thx

(why has this not been done by now???!!! ... or have I been away from earth?)

Had you checked out the grid and helplines available in some applications?

I have no idea what you are referring to and the link is irrelevant. Download Mike Lin's crosshair utility for reference. Google is your friend.

These are cursors rather than full screen helplines:

Cursor Set - Advanced Crosshair

Does that look like the sort of thing you are after?

No. This topic has FULL SCREEN in it's title. Carefully re-read the op and reference this video to help you understand :



p.s. This video shows a utility that seems to work only when enabled for any specified app. I prefer Mike Lin's utility because it will 'replace' the system's cursor/pointer when enabled.

I expected this site to yield fruit for what I believed to be a simple task for the gurus here. Rather than believe this little itty-bitty app is of a complexity beyond the knowledge level of the membership, I will defer this as an issue of no interest to anybody here.

I am now in contact with Mark (from Youtube).

-thx
