    google fxvisor and install

    edit: some might not have installed .netframework 2.0. You will be prompted to install prior to use this tool

    Winaero have a very handy and simple utility for this. I'd copy the link but IE11 doesn't want to let me.

    Removing the arrow has not changed since the XP era. It's all the same.

    The method I mentioned above is bug free.

    the tool fxvisor which I mentioned above never gave me any bug since many years > for me it is bug free and I only can recommend it.
    Some guys came to me having fiddled in the registry by hand and failed. Most of the bugs sit between chair and keyboard :D

    yes there are some tuning tools out there which have such settings on board like windows 8 manger in addition to tuneup et cetera
    .... but as alway please use these tools with care - they can harm your system !!!
