Editors' Review

+

Sick of looking at that same old cursor? Us too. Click any of the animated 3D pointers on CursorFX to view the change before you even close the app. CursorFX starts you off with a handful of well-designed cursors, from the prim, sleek arrow replacement to a lightsaber look-alike or a grinding gear. More freebies await in Stardock's online user gallery.

These basic cursor-changing functions are free to use, but those seeking more performative tricks can upgrade to the Plus version. $19.95 unlocks features that have your cursor dot the screen with color each time you click or leaving trails of bubbles in its wake.

Anyone can tweak the custom cursor's look and feel and can easily revert to the standard model if you need a reminder of what you've left behind. CursorFX integrates into the Mouse panel, takes only about 1MB of RAM, and does not slow the cursor's movement. This free application is a must-have for upgrading Vista or XP's look.

"Nice, fun program, not for me."

November 06, 2011  |  By korinsha

 |  Version: CursorFX 2.05

Pros

Allows you to customize your cursors and look in Windows 7, it is simple to use and has a friendly interface.

Cons

None really, it's a matter of personal preference.

Summary

If you like customizing your Windows, are creative and have the time to use the program to design your own creations or edit the presets, then this is for you. It is well-made software.

"A relieving change after the Windows cursor stagnation"

September 15, 2011  |  By deroblesm

 |  Version: CursorFX 2.05

Pros

You can select at least 3 different new usable cursors

Cons

Some of the cursors are bulky and get in the way of text hints from menues.

Summary

Install it if you desperatly want to make a change on your Windows cursors which look out of date after you paid hundred of dollars on your Windows 7 operating system.

"Versatile, colorful, and creative."

May 31, 2011  |  By amcec

 |  Version: CursorFX 2.05

Pros

Cursors are very creative and even flashy.

Cons

The program takes over and it is difficult to change the cursor pointers.

Summary

I would not recommend it, in fact, I uninstall it since it defied changing the cursors.
