File format information for CUR and ICO

Full NameMicrosoft Cursor Icon
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

The CUR file format is a graphics file format whose main purpose is to store custom mouse cursor graphics. As this format is designed for cursor graphics, it has support for an alpha channel to allow for transparency within the image.

The format can store image data at varying color depths and resolutions, enabling the file size to be reduced if the number of colors in the image is optimized for a lower color depth. For example, a black and white CUR image can be stored at a color depth of 1-bit or monochrome, saving considerable storage space.

CUR files are a legacy file format that can be opened with certain image editing applications that still support this format; alternatively, we have a set of CUR image conversion tools designed to convert CUR files to other, more modern formats, such as PNG.

Mime Typeimage/x-icon

An ICO file is a bitmap graphics format first introduced as part of the Windows operating system as a means of assigning a user-friendly visual indicator for applications that run on the operating system.

Multiple images can be stored within a single ICO file; these images can be of varying sizes and color depths, with the operating system choosing the most appropriate size when rendering an icon for a specific task.

As the ICO format has been around for many years and is still used today not only by Windows but also by other platforms, it is well supported with many 2D graphics applications able to export to the ICO file format.
