Changing the cursor on windows 10 is as above, but the problem is when you restart your computer it changes back to the system cursor.

This needs updating. Users here are complaining about 3 reasons:

1. the cursor reverts to original when restarted
2. does not support .ani files
3. not available for other platforms (i.e. MacOS)
