Cursor Commander

Cursor Commander is a freeware application created for simple applying and sharing of cursors. Using this app, you will be able to change all Windows cursors with one click. The application is a useful alternative to Mouse settings in the Control Panel: it allows you to see all cursors at once without scrolling and change ALL OF them with a SINGLE click. You are able to save your customized cursors to a cursors theme.
You will be able to share your cursors with other users as they can be exported to a single *.cursorpack file with one click.


How to use Cursor Commander


  • In the right pane of the application window, you will see the list of installed cursor themes supported by Cursor Commander. Select a theme there to see its cursors.


  • Right click the theme to show the context menu. Using that context menu, you will be able to save those cursors for sharing, open them in File Explorer or delete them.


  • In the left pane, you will see cursors which are included in the selected cursors theme. Click "Use these cursors" to apply them.


  • Click the specific cursor icon to change it, e.g. replace it with some cursor from an external file on your hdd or even from another installed cursor theme.

    After you make changes, click the blue diskette icon to save your changes as a theme.

What is the CursorPack file


Cursor Commander uses the CursorPack extension to handle installation of cursors. When you double click a CursorPack file in File Explorer, Cursor Commander will install it and show you cursors from the file you just installed.

The CursorPack file is just a ZIP archive which contains *.cur and *.ani files along with a special file which has the *.cursors extension.
The *.cursors file is just a text file with ini file structure which contains the following sections:
[Info]
DisplayName=Name of cursors theme
Author=Name of the author
Url=http://author's web site
BriefDescription=Few words about these cursors.

[Cursors]
AppStarting=appstarting.ani
Arrow=arrow.ani
Crosshair=cross.ani
Hand=Hand.ani
Help=Help.ani
IBeam=IBeam.ani
No=no.ani
NWPen=Handwriting.ani
SizeAll=SizeAll.ani
SizeNESW=SizeNESW.ani
SizeNS=SizeNS.ani
SizeNWSE=SizeNWSE.ani
SizeWE=SizeWE.ani
UpArrow=UpArrow.ani
Wait=Wait.ani


So, you don't even need Cursor Commander installed to create your own CursorPack file.
Cursor Commander is a freeware application which works in all Windows versions with .NET 3.0 or .NET 4.x installed.

    What about some variations on mouse trails? Msft has one set, and virtually no-one else has anything different.
    What about a comet trail and choosable colours, or a meteor trail? For presentations it makes visual tracking invaluable - people can see where you go and what you're doing.
    Mouse Tracks.
