Hi 0e6, you can edit the name of the shorcut by right clicking on it and deleting= the text. There is a tool included with Tweak UI http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/tweakui Mike ~ one of the Moderators It is a good day if I learned something new.

Whenever I make a Desktop shortcut to a program, it puts a little curved arrow on the lower corner of the icon, and it names the thing as 'shortcut to...[program]'. How can I get it to not add the arrow, and not say 'shortcut to...' in the name of the shortcut?
