DCS – Dynamic Cursor Selector v1

My secondary display is the TV in my living room. From the couch the mouse cursor always seemed too small, and also the Explorer Window was hard to read.
As I use my computer for home-cinema, I started to code DCS to increase the size of the cursor and the Windows Explorer window for easier browsing and movie selection.

DCS dynamically selects the cursor set and size, depending on the display the mouse cursor is on.
The amount of displays to customize is automatically adjusted (minimum 2).
Possible cursor sizes to select are 32px, 48px, 64px, 96px and 128px.

In DCS you can select from two default Windows cursor sets, and it comes with three more custom sets to choose from.
Additionally, you have the option to magnify the Windows Explorer window, depending on the display the cursor is on.
The DCS settings can be accessed through the DCS tray icon.

You can add your own cursor set, take a look at the instructions in the “Cursors” sub-directory. If you have nice sets, please feel free to share them with me and I’ll add them to the next release.
If you find any bugs or limitations, please let me know.
