Ridding Vista Of The Shortcut Arrow

Looks like it isn’t as easy to remove the shortcut arrow (the little arrow over an icon that indicates it is a shortcut) in Windows Vista as it was in previous Windows versions. As a result, FrameworkX has released FxVisor, a simple li’l app which does exactly that.

I don’t know why Microsoft continues to use the little arrow. It just doesn’t fit the visual design of Vista. Instead, they should have been more creative, like putting the regular icon on top of another one that indicates a shortcut, like a window or a door, or at least use a giant glass arrow. This little ugly arrow just doesn’t look right with all the graphical niceties in Vista.
