b.Then type in your keyboard regedit and hit Enter for opening Registry editor.

c. Next go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer and double clicked on the link at the right pane.

d. When the Edit Binary Value of window pops up in your screen, then change its value from 0000 1A 00 00 00 to 0000 00 00 00 00 and click OK.

If you do this carefully, then if you go to create a new shortcut, the “Shortcut” suffix should not reappear.
