[How To] Remove the word 'Shortcut' on shortcuts in Vista


Recommended Posts

Here is how to get rid of the word 'Shortcut' on shortcuts in Vista. make your own with the below or use the .reg file i've attached to this post:

; get rid of the word 'Shortcut' on shortcuts

; this is the original value

; [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]

; "link"=hex:1e,00,00,00

; this is the changed value to get rid of word 'Shortcut'



Reboot after you do this. It will not get rid of the word 'Shortcut' on the shortcuts created before this reg entry, it will only not put the word 'Shortcut' on those you create after this reg entry is done. I included the original value also in case you want to go back, just comment the changed value and un-comment the original value to and merge it again and reboot.
