To prevent Windows from adding the word "shortcut" to shortcut names, I've always set the
Link value to
00 00 00 00 in the following registry key:
I find this no longer works in Windows 10.
Even after logging off and even restarting, Windows 10 goes right on adding the word "shortcut". Furthermore, it changes
Link back from
00 00 00 00 to other values such as
17 00 00 00.
I'm on the latest version of Windows 10 that's successfully come to my machines (April tech preview, build 10074).
I've searched but can find nothing about this.
How can we stop Windows 10 from adding the word "shortcut"?
