    hi,

    Without installing Autopatcher, is there any way to remove "shortcut to" prefix from Shortcuts?

    Start -> RUN and type regedit, nevigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

    In right-side pane, create a BINARY value link and set its value to 00 00 00 00

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-xxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxx\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
