    does this just work for folders? i still have the arrow overlay on my shortcuts i have sent to the desktop.

    i lied. i guess it just took a couple of restarts for some reason. thanks for the download. i have always disliked the arrow overlay. i do not need an arrow to tell me the icon is a shortcut. thanks again.

    Help, after applying shortcut remover in Windows 7 the shortcut overlay displays a small black square where the shortcut arrow was previously. How do I fix this? Thanks!

    Hello Kelly, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You should be able to restore the default shortcut arrow icon overlay using the tutorial below. If you wanted to removed the arrow, then you can use the same tutorial to remove it after restoring the default settings to fix it.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the help. I used the tutorial and after a couple of reboots the icons are back to normal.
