What is a cur file?

The CUR file extension is used by Microsoft Windows to display non-animated cursor images. Cursor images appear when using a computer’s mouse. The image may change when pointing or selecting icons.

CUR files may contain one or more small images at varying color depths and sizes. In Windows 95, NT and later, CUR files have been largely replaced by the ANI file format, which allows for animated and color cursor designs. Certain programs and applications may change the CUR file cursor image settings to allow customization for a desktop theme.  Photoshop PSD files are examples of files that can do this.
