    can't turn off shortcut text in creator


    Every time I change
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\LINK to 00 00 00 00, it resets itself back to xx 00 00 00. The xx being the previous value + 1 and "shortcut" continues to appear.
    How do I snatch my destiny away from M$ and stop this BS????????

    Hello ruggb,

    If you like, see if using the .bat file from step 3 in the tutorial below may be able to turn off the shortcut name extension for you.

    OK, thanks, BUT tell me why the bat file worked and a reg file nor direct modify did not?

    You're most welcome.

    Restarting the explorer process is required after the change to apply it. If that didn't get done, that could be why.

    The .bat file includes restarting explorer.
