[req] How to remove the mouse pointer


I

.::[ IchiGeki ]::.

Hi there,

after the searching on the oldnews, I have to ask another question: How to
remove the mouse pointer?

I tryed to this with a blank mouse pointer (nomouse.cur) but it works only
_after_ my personal settings are loaded. I want to remove the mouse pointer
before. It's possible?

Sincerely,

Well.. if you needed to hide it at the boot early stage (when your shell app is not loaded yet), you may want to look at the
transparent cursor option. I think you will need to play with the .DEFAULT hive under [HKUS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Cursors].
I don't know which value, though :-(

Also, you can play with MS GINA to hide the cursor during Logon.

Also you can try some suggestions from this thread:

Thank you my friend. I found very usefull information with your post. Now
the mouse pointer will appears for just a millisecond with the following
scheme (I replaced the path with a "nullmouse.cur" file designed with an
icon editor):

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Cursors]
@=""
"Help"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\help_L.cur"
"Wait"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\busy_L.cur"
"Crosshair"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\cross_L.cur"
"IBeam"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\beam_L.cur"
"NWPen"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\pen_L.cur"
"No"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\no_L.cur"
"SizeNS"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\size4_L.cur"
"SizeWE"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\size3_L.cur"
"SizeNWSE"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\size2_L.cur"
"SizeNESW"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\size1_L.cur"
"SizeAll"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\move_L.cur"
"UpArrow"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\up_L.cur"
"Hand"=""
"Arrow"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\arrow_L.cur"
"AppStarting"="C:\\WINDOWS\\cursors\\wait_L.cur"

Also changed the "Background" parameter in Colors with the value "0 0 0".

Now I have a "perfect" blank black screen without explorer.

Thanks alot to KM and to all the NG folks
