Recommendation for cursors? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Obviously a lot of the Metro design is focused on touch, but lots of people will be using it with a mouse. One of the things that people are used to when using a mouse is if it is a link, in other words it changes the page, then the cursor should be displayed as a hand.

    What are the official recommendations regarding the use of cursors? Should it be changed to a hand any time that clicking on an item will change to a new page, or should you always use the arrow cursor?

    Unfortunately XAML at least, makes using cursors difficult, but end users don't really care about that :-)
