Change Shortcut Icon

Use Classic Shortcut Arrow Overlay Icon

Changes the default shortcut arrow overlay on all shortcut icons to the small classic xp arrow.

Download the following code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons]

Run it and then log off and log on, or restart the computer to apply.

To return to the default icon delete the 29 entry in Shell Icons. (NOTE: untested)
