    Does anyone have an idea on how to remove the .lnk extentions from shortcuts on the desktop and the "All Progams" menu in the start menu. I've tried to rename the shortcuts without using the .lnk extention but then the shortcuts don't work.
    In other words, the shortcut to Windows Explorer on my desktop is named Windows Explorer.lnk. I want to remove the .lnk part.
