    Ultimate Windows Tweak for windows 7+Remove Arrows on Shortcut Icons

    Ultimate Windows Tweak for windows 7, I tried it yesterday to remove the arrows on shortcut icons. Well it did but it actually left just the text no icon either. I did go back in and reverted it back and I had done a System Restore before fiddling around so all is good just thought I would bounce it on here. I only checked one as I was not interested in all the other tweaks.

    I have had great success with UWT. I did not have the problem you described. I have recommended the app several times. There are hundreds of tweaks to the UI. I left the arrows on the shortcuts, just removed the words Shortcut To from the icons. I do not mind seeing the arrow. It's actually helpful to me to know whether I'm looking at a shortcut or the actual .exe.

    Well, I would like to have a picture of my face when there was just text and no icons and I don't think all the Photo shopping in the world would have helped a bit. (talk about panic)

    Not a problem, this place is amazing, I ask for help and it comes barreling right back at me. I have asked for help in years past on other forums and usually the answers are oblique and so confusing that I give up on the question/problem. Six months or later I will stumble on a solution to the problem.
