Remove arrows from desktop shortcuts?

  Colonel Graham 13 Sep 11

I did a search of the forums with mixed results, most of them years old. What is the latest take on this on Vista, please?

I haven't any arrows on my vista desktop. Now I have to work out why!

  Woolwell 13 Sep 11

Hm I was wrong. I have arrows!

I didn't have them until I had to restore to factory.

As far as I am aware it's a registry change. You can download programs to change it. I doubt that you didn't have arrows when you first got the system.

Found it at MajorGeeks

TweakVI got rid of them. Thanks for looking.

Here's your link to TweakIV on Majorgeeks It's the _ underscores that mess it up, all text between two of them just changes to italics when you paste URL direct into post.

Thanks, one to remember. I'm awarding a green tick for that
