    Yes, that's the color inversion.

    Does anybody know where Microsoft hid the Hand and Hand Grab cursors?

    That’s a good question, Collin2012. Although my pointer hand is the Delta45 Inverted, my grabbing hand is not. Is it possible to include that, Horace?

    Are you guys talking about the App grabbing hand? So far, in many programs, all grabbing had a program-related pointer.
    I'll take a look.

    But I can tell you that it's not located where the usual pointers are. It seems to be indeed hidden somewhere, like any other Metro apps. If I may guess hidden in File Explorer.

    The grab cursor(s)...

    I couldn't locate the start screen grab cursor but all points out in that direction: it is hidden in executable resources. I found some other cursors... many dll's (like ieframe.dll) and for instance pdf readers (like PDF XChange) use their own, built-in grab cursor.

    From what I've seen, the start screen grab cursor isn't in Explorer.exe but somewhere else (and I hope it's not a png). In this case, replacing the grab pointer isn't easy and straightforward, requires modification of system files and I wouldn't consider doing it unless you know what you're testing. Even locating it isn't easy, replacing it would mean using modified files that would be replaced by updates or restored to default by 'sfc scannow' repairs anyway.

    If the grab cursor we're talking about is the drag/grab Metro cursor from 8 and 8.1, then it seems that it got removed from the update 1 leak (build 17031). An app that gets dragged now has a title bar with a default arrow pointer.

    Hope this helps explaining a bit.

    Cheers!

    I think they're gone, probably because of the 'close' and 'minimize' buttons in the header now.
    On my machine anyway:
