Hello ElectricHuman, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately no. It's an all or none setting.

OPTION ONE installs a program to remove the short-cut icons but its running all the time if you uninstall it and the short-cut icons come back so its a waste of resources.

OPTION THREE works great its just a reg file and a blank icon in the Windows folder. and it also works on Windows 8. In fact it works on my Vista, Windows 7 and Win8 a really simple way to do it.

Hello Keith,

Just a FYI, but that's not true about OPTION ONE.

The program does need to be installed to run it, but the program does not run all the time in the background, not does it need to. If you uninstall the program, it does not undo what changes you made to your shortcut arrow.

The program is not required to be running or stay installed to keep your changes made to the shortcut overlay icon.

If I delete the Shell Icons key, will it restore the default arrow, or will it cause problems?
