Remove The "Shortcut To" Prefix

Is the "Shortcut to" text prefix on your shortcuts annoying you no end? Here is the way to remove all instances from all your shortcuts.

Fire up your registry editor and go to HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer. On the left pane, create a new binary value named link. Set the value to 00 00 00 00. Restart your system and the "Shortcut To" text prefix is gone.
