Anyone have Big Bright Cursor set?

I've been googling for almost a week now, I can't seem to find a large cursor set than the default "Windows Aero (extra large)(system scheme)" theme...

Anyone has a cursor set that's at least as large?

Thanks in advance...

Hi zzz2496,

If I understand you correctly, try here Large Pointers 1.0.

If not, please provide more information and screen prints if possible.

Cheers

Tim

It works for me, so let me give you my recreation steps (after installation is complete)

1. Right click on your desktop and choose 'personalize'
2. Click 'Change Mouse Pointers'
3. On the Mouse properties dialogue, select which pointer you wish to change
4. Click Browse
5. Look in the ACE cursors folder
6. Select your new cursor and OK your way out

I hope they are what you are after

Hmm... it is big and bright I'm putting this as "Alternative" no. 1...

Thanks Tim

I'm currently browsing deviantart, I got ~90 cursor sets already... I still haven't found the one that's bigger or at least as big as Windows's Aero extra large theme... I'll post back if I found another alternative.
