Customize Your Computer’s Cursor With the NBN ‘Hammer’

NBN
Hammer

Show your pride in the home building industry by customizing your computer’s cursor with the “pounding hammer” cursor that is used in Nation’s Building News.

The customized cursor is available free from NAHB and Nation’s Building News and will work on Windows 95 or newer operating systems.

To begin customizing your computer’s cursor, first download the two hammer graphics needed to make the hammer move:

  • Click the following link for the Hamone graphic and save it to your computer.
  • Click the following link for the Hamoneover graphic and save it to your computer.

Once you have saved both hammer graphics to your computer, follow the steps below according to your Windows operating system. Customizing your computer with the new hammer cursor should take less than five minutes.

Windows XP:

  1. Click on the Window's "START" button on the taskbar.
  2. Select the "CONTROL PANEL" link.
  3. Find the "MOUSE" icon and click it.
  4. Select the "POINTERS" tab.
  5. Highlight the old cursor you want to change and click "BROWSE." (To make the hammer your primary cursor, highlight “NORMAL SELECT.”)
  6. Find the new “Hamone” cursor and double-click it.
  7. Click "APPLY" or "OK."
  8. To make the hammer cursor “move” when selecting a link or file, highlight a second old cursor you want to change (the suggested cursor is “LINK SELECT”) and click “BROWSE.”
  9. Fine the new “Hamoneover” cursor and double-click it.
  10. Click “APPLY” or “OK.”

  6. Highlight the old cursor you want to change and click "BROWSE." (To make the hammer your primary cursor, highlight “NORMAL SELECT.”)
  7. Find the new “Hamone” cursor and double-click it.
  8. Click "APPLY" or "OK".
  9. To make the hammer cursor “move” when selecting a link or file, highlight a second old cursor you want to change (the suggested cursor is “LINK SELECT”) and click “BROWSE.”
  10. Fine the new “Hamoneover” cursor and double-click it.
