How do you open the cursor file? I can't find the right program to open it... :-(

Install RealWorld Cursor Editor > Open the program from the start menu or desktop > Top Menu Bar > Tools > File Associations > Find the cursor files and tick them with a checkmark in each box > OK > Open your cursor > Done!
