    Hi there guys,

    I've been searching through the Internet for a guide to remove shortcut arrows in Windows 8.
    I found one with an .ico file and registry file to do it, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Could you please provide me with one for RTM version?

    Doesn't work. Maybe due to 64-bit OS of mine?

    You'll need a 64-bit version. Just google FxVisor64 and you'll be able to find it.

    Try the manual registry trick to get small xp arrow, I used it on my enterprise x64 and it works for me :)
