CUSTOMISED FEATURES: - Alteration of the appearance of the mouse cursor from the traditional 16 x 16 pixels to a variety of 32 x 32 and 32 x 64 pixels (approximately 8 times the size of the regular cursor). It also has the options for auto-doubling the size of all system and application-specific cursors.
