Several years back I substituted a twiddling thumbs animation for the windows hourglass. I don't remember how I did it and would like to be able to make such a substitution in Windows 10 and Access 2016. Anyone know if this is possible and how to achieve it? Thanks!

pduffer,

You may want to search UA using keywords like "change cursor" to see previous discussions like this one. With any luck, the code you find may work right away, or may work with a bit of updating/tweaking.

Hope this helps,

Dennis

Yes, but don't have time now to pursue implementing something like that. What I had previously was something that replaced the hourglass wherever it might be used. I was hoping I could set up something like that. Seems like it was simple, but was too long ago for me to remember any details.

to change the default mouse pointers in Windows 7, go to Control Panel | Mouse | Pointers tab in Mouse Properties dialog. you may be able to find it similarly in Windows 10.

Thanks. It's similar in Windows 10, but what I'm really looking for is a way to add to the options displayed to select from.

doesn't Windows 10 have a Browse... option to allow you to choose a custom cursor? you need a cursor file to put in the appropriate folder on your hard drive, of course.
