    How do I remove the shortcut arrows

    Using Win 10 single language home version. How do I remove the little shortcut arrows from the desktop icons? Tried the regedit tutorial creating new shell with file 29, but it just created little black boxes where the shortcut arrows were so I had to remove it.

    Hello jacatone,

    If you like, you can use the downloadable transparent.ico file in the yellow tip boxes in the tutorial posted above to not have a black box.

    Try "Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4". Worked great for me and it's free.
