    1 = Allow



    Here's How:

    1. Do step 2 (allow) or step 3 (prevent) below for what you would like to do.


    2. To Allow Themes to Change Mouse Pointers
    *note This is the default setting.
    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Allow_themes_to_change_mouse_pointers.reg

    Download

    3. To Prevent Themes to Change Mouse Pointers
    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Prevent_themes_to_change_mouse_pointers.reg

    Download
    4. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    5. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6. When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

    7. If you like, you can now delete the downloaded .reg file.


    That's it,
    Shawn

    Mouse pointer schemes not sticking in Windows 1809

    I've set my mouse scheme to standard/classic in mouse settings and have also modified the reg key to prevent theme changes (Allow or Prevent Themes to Change Mouse Pointers in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials) but still I'm getting the default spinning blue loading wheel instead of the classic mouse schemes hour glass. The rest of the mouse scheme seems to be working, it's just the loading wheel that's still on default. *Confused

    Mouse pointer schemes not sticking in Windows 1809

    What happens if you choose a diffrent .ani for the spinning blue loading wheel, save and load something up?
    Does it still reverte back to the default spinning blue loading wheel or does it keep the new .ani ?

    If you load a diffrent scheme and load up something does it keep the new mouse pointers ?
    If yes, you could always try to just modify the current scheme you have to the prefered animations.
     
  6. Mouse changing pointer by itself??? [Solved!!]

    You may have to use a camera to take a picture, but not sure that is necessary.

    Is this the computer in your system specs?

    Have you scanned for malware?

    Does it change for every program, or just certain ones?

    Is "Allow themes to change mouse pointers" unchecked?
