What happened when you right clicked, select Rename, and changed the name?
"That didn't work" doesn't tell us much.
Is this a shortcut icon? If you right click, select Properties, does the Properties window have a shortcut tab?
In that Properties window can you change the name under the General tab? If not, what happens when you try?
Is there a way to remove the text that says "Shortcut" under the icons of programs I download? I just downloaded an MP3 tag program and the desktop icon it created says "Shortcut" after it's listed name. I tried right clicking and renaming, but that didn't work. Tried the registry edit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
setting value to 00 00 00 00 in Link, then rebooted
Nothing has removed the word shortcut
Is there a program that will do it?
Any help will be appreciated.
