    How to delete a .exe property comment

    I can't figure out a way to delete a shortcuts comment without damaging the shortcut itself. Has anyone done this before?

    That doesn't look like the shortcut property dialog on any of my shortcuts. For one thing, there's no "Shortcut" tab. On mine,
    the comment that appears when the pointer is hovered over the shortcut icon appears in a box at the bottom of that Shortcut tab, and it is editable

    EDIT: Well, it seems this more Windows fakery, as the edits are reverted on restart. I had no problem editing
    shortcut comments in Win Vista.
