If you want to change on a Windows 10 you right click on desktop then click personalize, themes, mouse pointer settings, and double click on the original cursor you want to change then choose the file you downloaded the .cur to. Select the cursor and click apply then close. You should have a functional cursor.

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.
