Removing Arrow From Windows XP Shortcut Icon

Desktop Shortcut Icons are accompanied by a shortcut arrow by default on Windows, and if you find them annoying and want to remove the shortcut arrow on icons, here’s what you have to do:

  • Go to Start >> Run
  • Type regedit.exe and hit enter
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    Explorer\Shell Icons. If this key doesn’t exist, create one.
  • Create a new string value under this key by right clicking and name it as 29
  • Set its value to C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll,52
  • Close the Registry editor, and restart your computer for changes to take effect
