    Has anyone tried TweakUI? I'd like to eliminate the arrows on shortcuts.
    Thanks,
    Ronnie

    TweakUI only works with XP or earlier version. When I posted on the Windows Registry Guide there was a warning about removing the shortcut arrow;............

    As I stated in another post, that hack can cause problems

    Warning: If you choose None, you cannot differentiate between the shortcut and the actual file/folder. You may end-up copying a shortcut to a file in situations where you need the original file. Hence, setting the arrow to None is not advisable

    You have to perform a manual registry edit.

    However, removing the shortcut arrow can cause problems.

    Warning: If you choose None, you cannot differentiate between the shortcut and the actual file/folder. You may end-up copying a shortcut to a file in situations where you need the original file. Hence, setting the arrow to None is not advisable.

    Another warning:

    Note : Please note that in some cases deactivating the arrow for *.LNK files might lead to duplicate items in the Explorer Context menu.

    I would advise you don't do it.
