Editors' Review


Funny Cursor is a cursor customization that allows users to have a cursor that changes directions with the movement of their mouse. There's not much to this program, but it works as it's supposed to and the effect is kind of neat.

The program's interface is sparse and there is no Help file, but it's not hard to figure out what to do. Users can choose between the default cursor size or a smaller one. The cursor is transformed into an arrows--the small one is slightly larger than the standard cursor--that then changes direction as the users moves the mouse. Users can select whether they want the program to change all the different cursor types; for example, the text select or busy cursor could be left as the Window's default. The program's options are accessed through an icon in the system tray, and although this worked fine the first few times, we suddenly started getting an error message stating "Cannot make a visible window modal." Exiting and restarting the program fixed this problem, but for a program that does so little, this is a big issue. We were also disappointed that although the program gives us the option of downloading more cursor themes, clicking that button leads us to a Web page that won't load.

Funny Cursor is a free program. It comes as a ZIP file but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program for users who are interested in a very basic cursor customization, but be prepared for the occasional error message, and don't expect any additional themes.

    "It doesn't have enough color for me at all."

    Not a bad program if you like plain interfaces.


    It has a boring interface. If you're looking for sparkles and fun, this isn't the program for you.


    Download another program if you want colors and fun. This isn't it for you, but other than that the program is not bad.

    Cool program. I really don't know if i want to have this running all the time, but it doesn't seem to use much resources, and i love the effect. I also love the cursor theme that it uses. Nothing bad to say about this program.


    Um, uh... i got nothing.
