I'm hoping to locate Mosaic to help me with part of this...

This week I'll have a new computer with XP Home. I was using 98 SE. I admit, I get thrilled and way too happy over silly, superficial things. Like being able to have background pictures in my folders. And I've especially loved the Registry merge that Mosaic sent me once to remove the shortcut arrows from my desktop icons following the March 2002 MS Security Patch. (I love to make icons, so getting rid of those arrows meant a lot to me.)

Anyway, now it seems like I can't have folder backgrounds anymore - right? And, I'd love to see if Mosaic has an XP Registry merge to get rid of the shortcut arrows the same way he did for my 98 arrows. But I don't know how to find him.

I don't want to seem like a whining baby over folder backgrounds and shortcut arrrows - but I'm hoping someone can help/humor me.

That option is in tweak ui to remove the arrows in the desktop shortcuts.


Click on explorer then shortcut.

Thank you, that's great! Tweak UI couldn't rectify it in 98 after that patch installed, that's why we had to resort to the Registry hacks. Thank you very much.
