Do you know how to remove the arrow on the Steam game shortcut icons on the Windows desktop? I know how to remove the arrow for all the other shortcuts, but the ones for Steam games are different, and the arrows are still there. Thank you
ayy lmao (2 years ago)
Ohh ok
Ryuhei64 (2 years ago)
+ayy lmao Oh, just because the icons look better without the arrow. I have all the Steam game shortcuts in a folder, with custom big-sized icons, and they would look much better without the arrow :)
ayy lmao (2 years ago)
+Ryuhei64 Why do you want to remove the arrow

ArchAngelSlayer1 (4 years ago)
These shortcuts can't be placed on the task bar... something that bothers me but I thought it was worth mentioning.
ArchAngelSlayer1 (4 years ago)
+sascha weichmann Wow, that worked.  Thank you very much, brilliant idea.
ArchAngelSlayer1 (4 years ago)
Yes lol.  I think it has to do with the fact that it is considered a web shortcut rather than a program shortcut.
iwasnamedian (4 years ago)
have you tried dragging them?
GoddessDrummer (4 years ago)
