Windows Cursor

File extension .cur

Description Remember the ubiquitous cursor on your Windows PC; the existence of such graphic cursors was made possible by the creation of CUR files. Cursors come in different forms – arrow, hourglass, or the more recent spinning loop. The first CUR file format to enjoy commercial use was incorporated into Microsoft’s Windows 1.0 in 1981. With the introduction of more interactive cursors, users were able to change their cursor preferences from a list of pre-installed options. However, editing a CUR file itself will be nothing short of a hassle, especially for users without the technical know-how.
Technical details CUR files were developed as an offshoot of the ICO file format, which is simply the rendering of an image at different sizes and shades. To make a CUR file out of ICOs, software engineers tweak the ICO document by including information that defines the default position of the cursor on the computer screen. Just like ICO files were improved upon, recent Windows come with ANI files as a replacement for the not-so-dynamic CUR files.
