    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.
