Change The Look Of Desktop Icons

When we create a shortcut on the desktop in windows xp, the icons there carry a shortcut arrow, and dont give an original look to the icons. So how about removing those arrows in one simple step? Here we go: Click on Start, followed by Run and in the box that pops up, type, Regedit.
Once your Registry Editor opens up just track the following path in the window to reach explorer:
Under \explorer, create a new Key called: Shell Icons.
In Shell Icons, create a new REG_SZ called: 29
Assign to 29 a value of: %SystemRoot%\\noarrow.ico,0
Download noarrow.ico, extract the file and copy it to the \Windows folder. Copy the noarrow.ico file, restart the computer.
