Ought to change mouse pointer.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I went to a friend's house and used his PC and he has this nice pointer.

He said he will teach me but wasn't able to because he's away for a vacation trip.

So, I hope you can help me with this.

So, will I change my mouse cursor in such a way that the mouse pointer has its trails follow it as it moves?

4. Click Pointer Options tab. Check Display pointer trails and then click OK.

Your mouse pointer should have a mouse trail now.

Just close the Control Panel and all other dialog boxes when done. You can also change the way your mouse pointer appears or change the appearance of the mouse pointer by using an application called CursorFX.
