Arrow-free Shortcuts

Shortcut icons have a small curved arrow in the lower-left corner. To remove the arrow, follow these instructions:

1. Start the Registry Editor.

2. Locate the keys HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\piffile.

3. Delete the value IsShortcut under both these keys.

4. Close the Registry Editor and restart Windows.

You can also do this using TweakUI.
