/GTK 4.0

Windows-specific handling of cursors

By default the system cursor theme is used. This makes GTK prefer cursors that Windows currently uses, falling back to Adwaita cursors and (as the last resort) built-in X cursors.

When any other cursor theme is used, GTK will prefer cursors from that theme, falling back to Windows cursors and built-in X cursors.

Theme can be changed by setting gtk-cursor-theme-name GTK setting. Users can override GTK settings in the settings.ini file or at runtime in the GTK Inspector.

Themes are loaded from normal Windows variants of the XDG locations: HOME%/icons/THEME/cursors, APPDATA%/icons/THEME/cursors, RUNTIME_PREFIX/share/icons/THEME/cursors

The gtk-cursor-theme-size setting is ignored, GTK will use the cursor size that Windows tells it to use.
