Remove "Shortcut" Text From New Shortcuts

One of the irritating thing about Windows is the " -shortcut " text that is placed after the name of newly created shortcut link. And we must remove it manually which is more irritating. Now you need not to worry because here's a trick that removes your  " -shortcut " text automatically.
Notice the ” – Shortcut” added to my "CV Keshav Gyawali" PDF file.

Manual Registry Hack
Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box or type "regedit" in run command box, and then browse down to the following registry key:

On the right-hand side you’ll find a key that is just called “link”, with a default value of 1e 00 00 00. Open this key up and change the 1e to 00 instead, leaving you with 00 00 00 00.
You’ll have to log off and then back on to make this change take effect. Please note that this won’t affect existing shortcuts, only shortcuts that you create from now on.
To change the setting back, just change back to the 1e value, log off and back on.
