regedit

Recommended Posts

start>run>regedit

it edits your registry, honsetly, if you didnt know what it did, leave it alone.

be very very careful... it can screw you upsidedown and you wont know what to do

One suggestion before you edit anything make shure you back it all up first... do not edit anything or delete anything unless you are shure it will have no adverse side effects later, these may not even be apparent right away but when you start a program sometime they may emerge :)

Heres the thing i am supposed to do to get rid of the arrows. The problem is, i cant find the registry item, and i used search.

1. Start regedit.

2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTlnkfile

3. Delete the IsShortcut registry value.

You may need to restart Windows XP.

Don't f your system :)

To Remove the Icon:

Open your registry and delete the value named 'IsShortCut' from the keys [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile], [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\piffile] and [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut].

I looked for files, and couldnt find them. any ideas? i ran right through the registry.

If all you are trying to do is remove the little arrow from shortcut icons then I would use TweakUI like Ryan suggested a few posts ago, it is a much safer way to do it.

Exactly. If you're going to clean up your reg, use Reg First Aid and Compact (see http://www.lunarsoft.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=311) - should help as well.
