Cursor - Set Size

This operation allows resizing of static or animated mouse cursors. Windows in standard resolution only allows 32x32 pixels cursors. While designing custom cursors or importing cursors from Linux format, it is sometimes beneficial to use larger than the standard size. This operation can be used before releasing the cursor to make its size standard.

Outdated information, just set the registry entry HKCU:\Control Panel\Cursors\CursorBaseSize to anything above 32 and call SystemParametersInfo in user32.dll to refresh (or restart). I've written a power shell script that lets me
change cursor scheme and size with 2 clicks...

Would love if tools like this would be more flexible at cursor size too...
1. Don't assume cursor having aspect ratio 1:1
2. Don't limit size to 256, 512 or anything rather the technical limit (2^8 for .cur, 2^32 for .ani)

Although the default options only allow you to change the size to 32 and 48 pixels, the most commonly used sizes these days, you can actually change to another format by just typing the number in the first field. If you dont want a square, type both numbers like "24x40". I would not use sizes above 255, because there is just 1 byte in the .cur and .ani files that specifies dimension, so the file would be invalid.
