Hello. I downloaded a cursor pack and made it my cursor, but whenever I touch my screen (since my computer is touchscreen), the cursor disappears and I have to set it back again in the Control Panel to see it. This has happened repeatedly when I accidentally touch my screen, and it's getting annoying opening the Control Panel all the time. Is there a solution to this?

Hey guys so i figured out how to change your cursor, follow these steps and you will have your own cursor.

1.Go to software and install cursor editor.
2.When you have installed it then open it and go to Create.
3.Click cursor from image, then on the bottom of the screen, click Create.
4.(it will open up your files when you click create)When you find the picture you want your cursor to be, click the picture then click *Ok*
5.You can edit the picture if you want, when you are done editing,(on top of screen where it says edit, click the blue thing, it should say save when you hover over it)Click save.
6.(the file should have a .cur at the end, DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME!) Click *Ok*
7.Under the X that you click to close the window or tab, there should be another X (a small X) Click the small X.
8.Go to Customize, and then pick the cursor you want to change, when you found the one you want to change, then go to Open cursor file.
9.Find your picture that you wanted and click ok when you found it.
10.Click Apply.
If this helped you than Your welcome.
