Compared to the other desktop operating systems, Windows has better customization features available. It has plenty of theme packs, tools and apps available to customize its interface and features. Previously, I wrote about “Start Screen Unlimited“, to enhance the features and functions of the Windows 8 start screen and “Ultimate Windows Tweaker“, to customize all the possible options and settings in Windows. Today I’ve come with a new application called “Cursor Commander”, which helps you to manage cursors and customize them easily for different apps and functions. Here’s how it works.
Cursor Commander is a free application for Windows. You can download the app using the link at the end of this post. It is a very small application and the installation is pretty quick. As soon as you complete the installation, you will see a window as shown in the screenshot above. By default, only basic cursors will be available. You can download different cursor theme packs from the official website using “Get more cursors” option on the application window. Once you select the package, it will show the preview of those cursors and give you the download link below.
After you download the cursors, either you can directly install the file by double clicking it or go to the application window and select the “Folder icon” near to the save button and locate the downloaded file. It will be extracted automatically. Once the extraction is completed, just select “Use these Cursors” option at the bottom of the window. The cursors will be changed immediately. You can install any number of packages from the website and quickly switch between them using the “Themes” section on the application.
Settings of the application will be available at the bottom menu. It doesn’t have any important options, it will check for new updates of the application. If you are interested in customizing your windows machine, Cursor Commander is worth giving a try. Install and use this application on your PC and share your experience with us in the comments.
