    David,
    That's a lot of results!

    -> right-click on one of those grabbers -> open file location.

    Don't forget the ones I've mentioned cannot be searched as "*.cur" if they are embedded as PE resource.

    Cheers!

    A PE:
    Portable Executable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    See that as a dll or exe.

    And that DLL or EXE's images and icons are good example of resources.

    Remember the icon-dll I gave you.

    Enjoy using those Red cursors.

    By the way, I thought I share this, might come in handy.

    You can set your favorite cursors as default. When you are logged out or at start-up/shutdown, we can notice the default white pointer showing even if we (afterwards) see our own pointers when on the Desktop.

    Aero Red (here XL) set as default was a good example to test this:
    Click image for larger version
    And it works.

    To set the Aero Red (Remastered) cursors as default, I provided registry entries in the zip below.
    You can choose between the normal edition, large and extra-large, of course.

    Note: This requires the Remastered Aero Red cursors to be installed before proceeding.

    Aero Red as default -> double-click the needed file:
    * setting the normal-sized version as default -> aero-red-normal-default-cursor.reg
    * setting the large-sized version as default -> aero-red-large-default-cursor.reg
    * setting the extra-large-sized version as default -> aero-red-extra-large-default-cursor.reg
    To switch back to system defaults:
    *set back (system) aero (normal-sized) as default -> default-aero-cursor.reg

    Log out after applying to notice the changes.

    Cheers!

    Nice.
    Indeed, you're using Microangelo.
    And of course, 7-Zip, my old-time favourite.

    If you open some of the lucky exes and dlls, you'll notice a section/folder called cursors. There you have it.
    Those are automatically applied when the program in question runs the required (in our case drag) operation.

    You can modify some of those too but using modified system dlls isn't always a good thing.

    That's all.

    Win 8.1 Update 1 x64


    Hey guys, thanks for the win 8 spinning cursors! They are awesome! This is the only page I found where people created cursors based on the spinner. This is so much appreciated.

    I have one request Could I get the white Win 8 Spinner cursors (with black border) in bigger sizes (48x48 for example) because I have a full hd laptop and I need the bigger cursors. I would be soo happy

    Hello Cursy,

    Welcome to EightForums!

    Nice to hear you like those pointers. What you need isn't made yet, but don't worry: it's possible.
    Are you using higher DPI (DPI Scaling Size - Change for Displays in Windows 8.1) or just a L or XL-sized cursor?

    No matter.
    I'm planning a remastered edition (like I did with Aero Red) where all sizes are included, in compliance with the original Windows cursors.

    In theory:
    - higher DPI settings needs a cursor pointer to be available in 32x32, 48x48 and since Win8 also in 64x64.
    - each cursor has, besides higher DPI-layers, a 'normal' 'large' and 'extra-large version'

    Click image for larger version

    Since only the white-black-border version is the one you're looking for, I'll begin with it to see how it goes.

    I'll post it here when I get some time working on it, in a couple of days.
    Stay tuned.

    Regards,
    Hopachi

    Hi Hopachi,

    that is awesome!!! I think I use both. There is a dpi scaling set on my win8 laptop but I still would love to use the large cursor. I usually change it manually in the mouse settings.

    Thank you soo much! Looking forward to it
