I imagine this allows you to change the icon for the pointer but thus far I can find no:
System.Windows.Forms.Pointer  or System.Windows.Forms.pointer
I did find something on MSDN but thus far have not gotten a good example of how the object is used.

Any help would be appreciated. A good example with the using statements would be ideal.

It doesn't do anything.  It's not a control or component you use.  It's there so you if you've clicked on a control or component and change your mind you can cancel your selection and switch your cursor back to a regular pointer while using visual studio.
