How to Change the Cursor into a Hand Pointer on Hover using CSS

Topic: HTML / CSSPrev|Next

Answer: Use the CSS cursor Property

You can simply use the CSS cursor property with the value pointer to change the cursor into a hand pointer while hover over any element and not just hyperlink.

In the following example when you place the cursor over the list item, it will change into a hand pointer instead of the default text selection cursor.

  • <!DOCTYPE html>
  • <html lang="en">
  • <head>
  •     <meta charset="utf-8">
  •     <title>Make the Cursor a Hand Pointer using CSS</title>
  •     <style>
  •         li{
  •             cursor: pointer;
  •         }
  •     </style>
  • </head>
  • <body>
  •     <ul>
  •         <li>List item one</li>
  •         <li>List item two</li>
  •         <li>List item three</li>
  •     </ul>
  • </body>
  • </html>
