Remove shortcut arrow from desktop icons

  Sometimes when you use shortcut's on desktop for your frequently used files or movies it is ugly to see a small Shortcut arrow at the bottom corner of the Shortcut icon.
    Here's how you can remove those shortcut arrows from your desktop icons in Windows XP.
 
 
1. Start regedit ie; Start->Run->regedit

2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile
             If you find difficult in reaching this file location, simply Press Ctrl+F to open find window. Enter "IsShortcut" and click find. now Press f3 till you get the file Inkfile located at Hkey_Classes_Root\Inkfile

3. Delete the IsShortcut registry value.

You may need to restart Windows XP.
