To remove the "Shortcut to..." text string instances from ALL your existing and ANY new Shortcuts you will create from now on, run Regedit and go to:

In the right hand pane create a new Binary value called "Link": right-click on an empty spot -> select Binary [hex] Value -> name it "Link" (no quotes).
If "Link" is already present: double-click on it -> type as many zeroes as necessary until it reads:

00 00 00 00

Click OK. Don't type the spaces.
Now apply the same trick under this Registry key:


to affect ALL users on your Windows 95/98/ME computer.
Restart Windows to make the changes take effect.
