    I am using windows vista Business with Aero experience. Please tell me how
    can i Remove the arrow sign from the shortcut Icons.

    Earlier while using XP i could do it using my Norton Systemworks.
    Systemworks had an option to remove the arrow sign from shortcut icons.

    Please tell me the process. If it can be done by making some changes in to
    the registry then also please update me with the process..

    Thanks , Looking for a quick response..
