    Hello -

    We have an application that we run on a Windows XP touchscreen computer
    using Internet Explorer 6 with SP2 in Kiosk (-k) mode. We would like to
    know if there is a way to remove the Mouse icon from the pages, however. Is
    it possible to remove the pointer? I've looked in Control Panel, Internet
    Options/Tools... I don't see that option anywhere, and people are saying
    the mouse pointer is distracting.

    Thanks,
    Blake

  2. If you can't find a way to remove it you might try creating a cursor that is
    blank (or if that is not possible a single dot of grey) and using that
    cursor instead of the dafault ones. It is really there but would like it was
    gone (almost).

  3. Yep, use:
    style="cursor:url(http://myserver/mycursor.cur)"

    You can use .cur and .ani files (.ico?).
    As long as the file exists you should be able to use a blank cursor file.
