TweakUI

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.
