Windows 7: Re-enabling icon shortcut arrows

Re-enabling icon shortcut arrows

I disabled my shortcut arrows when I first installed windows 7 rc and I've recently tried pinning things to my taskbar and it didn't work I just saw this, so now I know that disabling the arrows is what messed up my taskbar. I went to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile to re-add IsShortcut but I don't know what the value should be. So could somebody please post the value of IsShortcut.

In mine, that key has a blank value.
