Windows Vista Cursors & Icons

Tags: , , , , , ,

Have you seen the Cursors and Icons Windows Vista provides?

They all look so, erm, common! They look exactly the same as Windows XP Cursors and Icons.
Although you can download ready-made Cursors and Icons from other Website, but you just can’t find the design you want.

Microangelo is your solution!
It’s free to download but only an evaluation version. If you continue using it after evaluation period, you're supposed to pay $54.95.

At Microangelo , you will be able to find 3 types of software:

Microangelo Creation
"PhotoShop-style" user interface Software that allows you to create Windows XP Icons and Cursors.

Microangelo on Display
Software that lets you customises your Desktop's Icon like no other Icon program, even System Icon and Special Folder Icons.

Microangelo Toolset 6.0
Microangelo Toolset 6.0 includes four integrated Icon Utilities: an Icon Editor, Icon Manager, Icon Explorer and Animated Cursor Editor, which allows you to creator Cursors and Icons for Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000.

Microangelo Toolset 6.0 is the one we are looking at right now =)

What if I’m not artistic enough to create my own Cursors and Icons?
No worry, Microangelo Toolset 6.0 also allows you to import existing Icons, Cursors and Graphics and edit them.
If I want a Rocket as a Mouse Cursor, I can just simply search 'Rocket' under Image section of Google and download any Rocket Image I want.

After creating your Icons you can easily change your Program Files Icon using Windows Interface.
In order to change your Cursors, go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers and Browse for the Cursors you created.

My 2 cents worth:

For Windows XP user, another alternative Software you can use for your Cursors is CursorXP. It is a Software that lets you use and create Windows Cursors.
There’s a Shareware version from CNET download.com.
It integrates into the Standard Mouse interface of Windows and is easy to turn on and off as you need. Currently it only supports Windows 2000/XP/2003 as stated. I’ve haven’t try it on Windows Vista, will keep you all update after I try =)
