Hello Ashanub,

What method did you use to apply the cursor theme?

Could you also post back the link to the download page of this theme? This way we could do some testing with it to see if we may be able to spot what the problem may be.

this is where i downloaded it : Blue Arrow by ~tornado5 on deviantART
and, to install, I didn't get any setup or something. So I had to manually browse for them and apply.

Hello Ashanub,

I found the problem.

You would need to re-save your desktop theme after making the changes to the mouse pointers so that they will be loaded after a log off and log on or restart. I have added steps 8 and 9 in OPTION ONE for more on this.

You're most welcome.

Strange that you do not have to save the theme for sounds and wallpapers to keep them after a log off/log on or restart, but you do for mouse pointers. LOL

annoying mouse pointer

I have recently updated my mouse driver. Since doing this my mouse pointer is not the same. All i want is my arrow pointer back, i have changed it using the correct options but when i come to scroll i get this annoying grey box with a double blue arrow in it and it wont change back. I just want my little arrow back when im scrolling. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Mike,

What mouse (brand and model) do you have?

This sounds like the scroll feature on my mouse for when you click the scroll wheel on the mouse and move the mouse to scroll with. Usually rolling the mouse wheel or left clicking somewhere will stop this and return you to the pointer instead of the double arrow scroll.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

Hello All, I finally had tech support help me and after three techs..only one had the solution! In the newer systems there is a tab under mouse properties called "function"..you have to unclick "web assistant" and then unclick "enable icon view" and also unclick "zoom and circular scrolling"..this should get rid of all the pop up mouse icons. It worked!!
