Customizing cursors...how?

Hi, all! :-)

I downloaded an icon that I wanted for my cursor (it is a cursor)...after I
downloaded it....I opened it...and now I can't figure out how to get the icon
to "become" my cursor. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

Cursors have a .cur extension.
They live here >>>
C:\WINDOWS\Cursors

Copy or move your downloaded file here >>>
C:\WINDOWS\Cursors

To change the appearance of your mouse pointer
Open mouse...
Start | Run | Type: control mouse | OK |
Pointers tab |
Do one or both of the following:
To change all of your pointers at one time, select a new scheme under
Scheme.
To change one pointer, select it in the Customize list. Click Browse, and
then double-click the name of the new pointer you want to use for that task.

[[A pointer scheme is any combination of pointers used on your desktop. You
can change any number of pointers and then save them as a new scheme by
clicking Save As under Scheme. The new scheme will appear in the list under
Scheme. ]]

Thank you so very much, Jerry and Wes! When I got to the control panel
(mouse) I realized that I had saved my cursor in a different file...so I
found it and moved it. And now I have my cursor. Thank you so much! :-) God
bless you!!

I don't know what cursors you're using, but you can find more customizable
cursors here: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ,
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ %2520&subj=dlpage&tag=button .
It's free program and works well on my XP systems.
