Cursors schemes (mouse pointers themes) in Windows 7 Windows 7 comes with a default set of cursors (mouse pointers), and the "Windows Aero" scheme (a "scheme" is a theme for cursors) enabled by default; there are 13 pointer schemes included with Microsoft' latest operating system, including a "None" scheme / theme, the most basic scheme that requires the least amount of system resources (ideal for netbooks or underpowered laptops / PCs, for example).
