    Cannot Disable Shortcut Text!!! Help!!!


    Microsoft is the devil.

    In other news, I can't disable windows explorer shortcut text from being added on to shortcuts I create. I've tried manually doing the reg edits in the below field to 00 00 00 00 and it makes... 0 difference.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer (link)


    Please help, this is so annoying.

    Hello ryevick,

    Just to verify, did you restart the explorer process after making the registry changes to apply?

    If you like, the .bat file in step 3 of the tutorial below can do all of this for you.

    Well duh... apparently I didn't. The bat file worked. I've got a lot of plates in the air right now.

    Thanks
