View Full Version : Getting rid of "Shortcut to"

03-03-2004, 07:20 PM
Wasn't it enough to put an arrow in the lower left corner of a shortcut icon?

I never understood why the annoying "Shortcut to" is attatched with its name.

Is there any workaround?

please suggest the solution for Win98, WinME, Win2000 and WinXP.

Use tweakui to get rid of arrow. Right click > Rename to get rid of shortcut to.

TweakUI can also remove (http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article05-022) the "Shortcut to" prefix.

And you can simply gently and slowly click twice on the name and it will change it to an editable box just like when you select Rename....
