or Change the Shortcut Arrow (Windows 9x and NT)
Would you prefer to show your shortcuts without the arrow in the
bottom left hand courner? This tip will show you how to change the
arrow icon or remove it completely.
To Remove the Icon:
Open your registry and delete the value named 'IsShortCut' from
the keys [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile] and [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\piffile].
To Change the Icon:
Open the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
Icons] and create a new string value called '29', or modify
the exist value, so that the data equal the filename for the icon
you want to use for the shortcut arrow.
Note: Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
For example, the setting may look like:
(Default) (value not set)
