Customize Your Mouse Pointer In Vista

As you probably know, you can customize many different aspects of Vista (and previous versions of Windows) to meet your own preferences. One such customizable aspect is the mouse pointer.

Vista has a default style for the mouse pointer. Now you may find this default style rather dry and boring. If so, you can change it to something more exciting.

To customize the mouse pointer in Vista:

  1. Open the Control Panel and click Personalization.
  2. Click Mouse Pointers
  3. From the Mouse properties window, select the Pointers tab shown in the following figure.
  4. Under the section labeled Scheme, use the drop-down arrow to select a different pointer scheme from the list.
  5. Click OK and the new pointer settings will take effect.
