How to mirror desktop icons (only half)?

Hi all,

I just got myself a new wallpaper for my Win7, which has the Win7 logo mirrored. I now would find it beautifull if my desktop shortcuts could also be mirrored?

Kind regards,

Renzo

Welcome to the Seven Forums
I do not know of any program that will do it but you could use this tutorial Shortcut - Change Icon it will show you how to change the icon what you'll have to do is either find the icons that already have been made reflective or create your own and put them in a folder and put somewhere like in my documents and navigate to that folder when you change the icons but did not move that folder or you'll have to reset your icons again.
If you want to remove the shortcut arrow use this tutorial Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for your prompt reply and your welcome!
Hmm okay, I'm not really savvy with editing pictures etc. so I'll leave that part out then sadly, but the Shortcut Arrow I will do!

Thank you very much,
