Removing the “Shortcut to” prefix when creating shortcuts in Windows 7

  1. Open the Registry Editor. Click the Start button, type regedit, and press Enter.
  2. If a User Account Control dialog box appears, click "Yes".
  3. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer
  4. On the right hand pane, double-click the value link, changing its value to 00 00 00 00.
  5. Restart the computer (or just explorer if you know how) and no more “Shortcut to” prefixes XD
If you’re the lazy SOB i know you are i made a registry entry to double click on and it will do it for you XD
