You just do it like any other version of windows.

To open the cursor, open RealWorld Cursor Editor first, click on Tools on the top, go down to File associations.... Click on the file extensions you need and click OK.

  • Static cursors are in .cur form.
  • Animated cursors are in .ani form.

It's actually hidden. Open the image, click on View on the top, go down to the Layers and click on it. The tab will be there for you. Just click that button again to close the tab anytime.

Hope that helps!

how do you apply the cursor to my mouse?

Go to Start Menu, search "mouse", go to the pointers tab, browse for the cursor folder after you extracted it and equip each cursor matching its role. Click OK and see what happens.

Hope that helps!
