Don’t like having ‘Shortcut to…’ appended to every Shortcut? You’re not alone. With this tip you can stop Windows for adding this text when creating links.

Open your registry and find the key below.

Create a new BINARY value name ‘link’, of modify the existing value, to equal ’00 00 00 00′ to have the Shortcut text disabled.

TIP: This restriction can be used either on a user by user basis by adding it to HKEY_CURRENT_USER or on a computer wide basis by adding it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Registry Settings:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
Value Name: link
Data Type: REG_BINARY (Binary Value)
Value Data: (00 00 00 00 = No Shortcut Text)
