How to Download and Install Custom Cursor Theme Packs on Windows 11?

Windows 11 ships with a few built-in cursor schemes that allow you to change the default appearance of the mouse pointer. It allows you to change the color (white, black, or inverted) and size (default, large, or extra-large). If you are still unhappy with the default Mouse Cursor Theme, you can change it using the Settings app. To do that, you first need to download a theme and then install it.

Step 8. Select a cursor situation from the Customise section, and then click the Browse button.

Step 9. Now, File Explorer will open to the system folder that stores all the cursors available for each scheme. From here, navigate to the folder with the cursor file. Then select a cursor file you want to use and click the Open button.

Step 10. You need to repeat the process for each cursor in the list to replace all with customer cursors. When you’re done, click Save as. Give it a name, and then click “OK” to save the custom scheme.
