Click your Start button at the bottom of your screen. When the menu pops up, click on the Control Panel link. The Control Panel folder will open and you will see different icons in the folder. If you can't see the icons, do this. Go to the top of your window and click Tools > Folder Options. When the window opens, click on the View Tab. Under Hidden Files and Folder, tick the Show Hidden Files button. Click Apply and then the OK button. Now you should see your icons.
Double click on the Mouse icon in the Control Panel folder. The Mouse Properties box will open. This is where you will change the mouse settings.

When the Mouse Properties box opens, you will see a row of tabs at the top of the box. Click the Pointers tab at the top of the box. In the Pointers section you will see a drop down box under Schemes. Drop that box down and click a scheme and preview it in the bottom window. Go through the list of schemes to find the one that you want. To apply it, click the Apply button at the bottom of the box. You can also customize the pointers how you want them if you can't find a scheme that you like. To change a pointer, click on the pointer that you want to change. Then click the Browse button. A window will open with different pointers in it. Click the pointer that you want and click the Open button. Go down to the next pointer and repeat the steps above to change it. Click the Apply button to apply the new mouse pointers.
