What is a CURSORFX file?

Cursorfx file extension has CursorFX Theme file type, developed by Stardock, which is associated with the "data files" category.

CursorXP is a program for editing mouse cursor in Windows. Theme files created by this application are saved in files with this extension. They store mouse effects, trails, graphics, mouse events, and movement settings as well. A CURSORFX file includes .PNG files that serve as new cursor images and also contain version metadata and information about the author. These files are stored in a compressed state to reduce their size. However, some CURSORFX file can contain only effects – they are called mouse effects packages. Files that contain only trails are called mouse trail packages. CursorFX software is an updated and renamed version of the CursorXP program, which used  .CURXPTHEME files. Those can be opened by CursorFX too but saved only in the new format of .CURSORFX.
