What is CUR file?


This article discusses what a CUR file is, its uses, and where to find .CUR files. What is a CUR file? A CUR file is an open file extension that can be used by Microsoft Windows OS. This type of file stores data about the cursor position in the screen from the last time a cursor was moved. If there was no movement of a cursor for a long period of time no data would be stored in this file and it would be deleted automatically. The word "cur" comes from cursus which means "a going or moving" - this makes sense because when you move your mouse over items on your screen, they appear on the window that has been left behind!
