The cursor library contains both standalone cursors and cursor sets. A cursor set contains multiple cursors with similar style.
To download a cursor click on its file name (for example "MyCursor.cur"), not on its preview image. Your internet browser displays a dialog asking you what it should do with the clicked file. Pick the option that saves the cursor to your computer. If for your browser does not display the download dialog, right-click on the cursor name and select "Save target as..." or "Save link as..." or similar command (the exact wording depends on your browser). Your browser may also ask you to pick a location on your computer to save the file to. You can select any folder, just remember which one you selected - you will need to know where the cursor is to customize your active mouse cursor.
If you are having trouble downloading cursors, right-click on cursor's file name and choose "Save target as" from context menu.
Cursor sets are downloaded similarly to cursors - just click on the cursor set name (for example "MyCursorSet.zip"). Cursors are stored in a zipped archive and you will need to extract individual cursors before you can use them. If you are not sure what .zip means or how to extract files from a zip archive, stick with downloading individual cursors one by one.
Changing cursor is NOT as simple as double-clicking it. Windows uses different cursors in different situations. You may change cursor for each role in Control Panel. If you change your cursors often, consider using this freeware utility. It can save you a lot of time.
First, make sure, you have already downloaded the cursor to your computer as described above and you know in which folder the cursor file is.
Follow these steps (assuming you have Windows XP):
Double click the Mouse icon to display Mouse Properties and then switch to Pointers tab.
Select a pointer role to replace, click on Browse, and navigate to your downloaded cursor.
When changing pointers, you can see a preview of the frames of a cursor. Be aware that the preview is not accurate, it dos not respect frame duration and sequence.
Cursors are sometimes associated with malware. Here is a guide how to protect youself from a cursor virus.
You can create your own cursors and upload them using RealWorld Cursor Editor.
Wait, I have a windows 8.1 laptop and I don't even have any idea how to apply it.

For windows 8, downlaod the set you want, extracted the .zip file into somewhere where u know where they are, then move your mouse to the top right corner of ur screen and search 'pointer', click settings under the search bar, select 'change how the mouse pointer looks' then carry on from where the windows Xp tutorial left off
