    Remove arrows from shortcuts


    Hello Forum,
    On my previous system (1709) I removed the annoying arrows from desktop shortcuts using instructions given here "How to get rid of app shortcut arrows on the Windows 10 desktop | Windows Central".
    Tried this on the upgraded system (1803), all desktop icons became black.
    Edited back the registry and the icons came back but with the arrow. Now is there some other way to 'tweek' and remove those arrows.
    Answers will be appreciated
    Thanks


    :)
