Download mouse pointers by visiting sites that offer cursors, pointers or theme packs containing individual pointers such as DeviantArt.com and downloading them to a specific location or default directory for cursors. Some sites, such as RW-Designer.com, provide free utilities to install and begin using the new pointers.
Windows users can begin using the downloaded pointer by opening the Control Panel, selecting the Pointers tab of the Mouse option, and then selecting the desired pointer from the default cursor directory or navigating to the download location for the new pointer.
An alternative method is to download customization software, such as Stardock's Cursor FX. Cursor FX comes with an assortment of pointers and is available on Stardock.com
