Hello Rdwray,

If the gadget is installed, then the easiest way would be using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.

Gadgets - Add or Remove from Desktop

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Creating a shortcut without - shortcut written after the original name
as the titel declares, is there any patch or something to make Windows 7 shortcuts not rename theirselves to "application.exe - shortcut" but rename theirselves into just "application.exe"? I find it very annoying having to erase " - shortcut" from the name all the time.
