Circle cursor in Adobe XD

I am making a prototype on Windows using Adobe XD and I want the cursor to be a circle, not a finger because it doesn't look good for a mobile device. I watched some videos on youtube and the cursor on MAC is a circle and it seems to me a pretty unreasonable decision to not have this feature on Windows.

So if anyone is interested I found a solution. You can generate your own cursor, save it as png, jpeg etc. and use an online converter to convert it from .png to .cur. Then in windows-mouse settings-additional mouse settings-pointers you can change the default Select and Link select cursors. However, for some reason Adobe XD doesnt' recognise the new link cursor and the finger cursor is still visible. So this only works for clicking.

Edit: this works when you share the prototype for review and open it in browser however you need to use the screen capture to record it.

Yes, that's it. So I guess there really isn't another cursor on Windows for now?

Definitely a must that needs to be considered.
