    I didnt read the trick mentioned in DIGIT, but u can get rid of the arrow by using following trick: :)

    Open regedit and remove "IsShortCut" key from following keys:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile (to remove arrow from application shortcuts)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\piffile (to remove arrow from PIF files (DOS based) shortcuts)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut (to remove arrow from URL files shortcuts)

    i have already removed the arrows with the help of tweak ui.Dont be afraid just save your registry by clicking file>export.it is not such a big tweak so no harm will be there go for it.
    and:D please rep me if it works.

    Yes, as vishal said, Download: Tweak UI Run it, Restart PC...This is the simplest and safe method.

    whoa i was afraid for once.but it was good you saved it earlier.But Vishal what must have gone wrong? why it did not work.
    hey dude have you the deleted the lnkfile completely.you had to remove isshortcut entry from inkfile.maybe that had caused the trouble.
