How to Get the Animal Jam Cursor as Your Computer Cursor

Hey Jammers!

I have a super fun and easy trick for you today, and believe me, the results are astounding! :D

I've always been in love with the cute little arrowhead that makes up the classic AJ cursor, so I wondered what it would be like if that cursor was my everyday computer cursor.

With lots of research and trial and error, I have discovered the simplest, fastest way to make the Animal Jam cursor your default computer cursor!

But before we get into the steps, I'd like to briefly feature a funny username I spotted the other day:

Maybe when they were creating their account their butt was awfully itchy? O.o

Alrighty, enough of itchy bottoms. XD Now onto the steps!

First, you'll need to save the image below onto your computer. This graphic has a transparent background, so there is no need to edit it and all that swag. :P

Once you've saved the image, go to It should look like this:

Click on the red rectangular button that says "select files". Select image, then choose the image of the cursor.

Once the image is done uploading, download it to your computer. For PC's, you should find the downloaded file somewhere in the "downloads" folder. I'm not sure what the deal is for Mac's, but I think you get the idea.

Now cut and paste the downloaded file into your cursor folder, where all of your default cursor files are located. For PC's (Windows), go to OS (C:) ~ WINDOWS ~ Cursors. For Mac users... once again, I am terribly sorry. XD Hopefully you can figure it out.

Lastly, you'll need to upload the cursor file into the mouse settings. For PC's (Windows), go to Start ~ Control Panel ~ Hardware and Sound ~ Devices and Printers ~ Mouse ~ Pointers ~ Browse. Then upload the file and click OK.

And there you go! Now you can take the adorable AJ cursor with you wherever you go! By that I mean other websites and such. Hehehe!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Leave them in the comment section below or send me a message on Animal Jam.

Huge apologies to Mac users. I own a PC, so I'm not familiar with how the Mac computer works. If you still don't hate me after this post, I suggest you search a tutorial on the web or on YouTube for better instruction.

Thanks Whippers! Have a fantastic day. ^.^


  1. Hey would it be possible if you could use that cursor on a blog?

    1. Actually, yes, it is possible! I've never tried it before just because I like the current cursor a lot for my blog, but if you'd like to see a tutorial I would be happy to show you. :)

    2. Well I use macs so it might be kinda hard for you, I will just search it up. Im sure many other people would find that post helpful anyways

    3. Actually just realized the type of computer doesn't matterXD So yes please do:)

  2. Wow! My dad would kill me if I made the computer cursor the AJ cursor or changed it at all.. But when I get a computer of my own I will change the cursor to something!
