    Shortcut Arrows on Deskto icons

    I have downloaded TweakUI hoping to rid my desktop icons of the small arrow. I have tried over and over to get rid of the arrows but can not. I have Win98Se. Can someone tell me how this is done?

    Are you sure you have the correct version installed, i.e. NOT the newest one for XP? Download Version 1.33 here. Be sure you click the APPLY button while on this screen - see attachment.

    Re: Shortcut Arrows on Deskto icons

    Thank you Phil for you help. I did what you asked and it WORKED GREAT! I will copy your info and save it for future use. What I need to know is after deleting IsShortcut, when ever I add a new shortcut icon to my desk top will it have the little arrow or will it appear without it?

    Thank you bigaldoc for you reply. I do have the 1.33 version of TweakUI and have tried to remove the arrows using the same page of TweakUI that you posted with no luck. I did however use the info Phil posted and it worked great. No more arrows on my desk top.

    I have one more question Phil. I went looking for IsIcon and could not find it. Could you lead me to a part of regedit that would have that listing?

    If it's not there, it's not there. As long as your new shortcuts don't have the arrow, I wouldn't worry.
