Windows 10: Shortcut Arrow Icon - Change, Remove, or Restore in Windows 10
When using any program of this type you have to be careful. I do not use any of the automatic cleaning parts. I only use the parts that I know will not harm my PC. I have used this program since Windows Vista Manger and it is the best of it's type on the market. One just has to use it responsively. It is free for 30 days I believe and it is well worth the price.
Well Brink I found a way to remove all those yellow/blue shields from the shortcut icons!!! Took me a while, but no more dam yellow/blue shields on my desktop. Ahhhhhhhhh Always makes ya feel good when you beat Microsoft.
Please send me a PM with details so not to take this tutorial off topic.
I will do Brink, just need to give me some time, so I can write down all the steps it took me. Take me a few mins.
Tried the first method , and overlay is not going away
As for 2nd method I don't have shell icons(see image)
Read the instructions again, there is a NOTE telling you how to create the key if its not there.
I just came across Winaero Tweaker (winaero.com). Only tried the shortcut arrow option which worked for me. Haven't tried the other options. Anyone else have any experience with this freebie?
I realize everyone's taste is different. But for ME, the faint square is a PLUS, because it tells me which are shortcuts and which are not, while being so faint that it's not in any way annoying or unattractive.
I have done the same thing...almost, only thing different was I added Blank.ico into system32 folder and into Shell Icons.
