Update on Erasing the Shortcut Icon Arrows


UPDATE ON ERASING THE SHORTCUT ICON ARROWS
In the January 2008 issue (page 80), I told how to eliminate those annoying little arrows in Windows XP’s shortcut icons by running Microsoft’s free Tweak UI tool. At that time there were no free tools to do the job for Vista. Well, there is now—FxVisor (also called Vista Shortcut Manager) from Frameworkx. Go to www.frameworkx.com and click on “downloads.” In addition to just removing the arrow, FxVisor gives you these options: big arrow, small arrow, magnifying glass or nothing.
