When you install a new program on your system, a shortcut icon with an arrow is created and placed at your desktop. To many of these arrows on desktop shortcut icons do spoil a desktopís beauty and prevents you from giving a pro look to your desktop. So lets learn the TNT of removing these arrows forever!
Now to do this follow these steps

   1. Go Start Menu > Run
   2. Type regedit in Run

Registry editor will pop up as shown below,


   3. Navigate to the following registry key,
Code: [Select]
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfileDelete the IsShortcut registry value in the right pane (To delete the key right click it and select delete)

Note:- Itís also workable to just rename the IsShortcut registry entry to another name, such as IsNotShortcut. If incase you want the arrows back, you can navigate to the same registry key above and then rename IsNotShortcut to IsShortcut.

         4.     Now navigate to the following registry key,
Code: [Select]
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\piffile Delete the IsShortcut registry value in the right pane.

Note:- Again I would say that itís also workable to just rename the IsShortcut registry entry to another name, such as IsNotShortcut. If incase you want the arrows back, you can navigate to the same registry key above and then rename IsNotShortcut to IsShortcut.

         5.    Finally Restart your windows and enjoy the pro look on your next log in.
