vistaAs you know, every time you create a shortcut of any file in your computer, Windows Vista operating system will create along with the shortcut icon, a label named  like the original file plus the suffix   “Shortcut”. So for example, if you create the shortcut of a word file (.doc) named Test, Windows Vista will create a shortcut icon named Test – Shortcut. Useless to say,  if you use this option a lot and you don’t like the suffix “Shortcut” at all, every time a new shortcut is created you will have to modify it to remove the nagging word. Let’s learn how to remove this suffix thanks to a simple hack.

  1. Click Start.
  2. In the Search box, type regedit and press Enter.
  3. Locate this registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft \Windows\CurrentVersion \Explorer
  4. In the right pane, locate  the subkey named link.
  5. Double-click the subkey name link and set its value  to 00 00 00 00
  6. Reboot your computer for the change to take effect.
