    Default Shortcut arrows removed

    Hi!
    I need some experts advice.On the basis of an article,I learned how to get rid of shortcut arrows on the desk top.I followed instructions and it worked.Now I had to put a new item on the desktop and it does have the arrow,but I am not able to remove it as before,because once the "Is Shortcut"was deleted in the lnkfile section,it is not there any more,so how can I get rid of any FURTHER shortcut arrows in the future?Is there any way to re-set the Is Shortcut?Is there anything I can do?And while I am asking,is there a way to put all the arrows back(just in case?).
    Thanks very much in advance!
    John

    Please see if Ultimate Windows Tweaker helps you show/hide the arrows.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your advice.I checked Windows Tweeker,but could not see an appropriate section where I could find the way to solve this admittedly not so serious problem.If you could be more specific,I would appreciate that.I am not well versed in computer technology(I guess it shows).Thank you again for your attention to this.John

    UWT on a Win7 64bit w/IE 9 HP desktop; The "Remove arrows from shortcut icons" is not available; its blanked out. How can this feature be made available?

    When you extract the files from the zip folder you must leave ALL the files together in the same folder for the "remove arrows from shortcut icons" to function.
