Vista: how to delete a shortcut icon in 7 simple steps!
« on: June 01, 2006, 04:24:54 AM »
Almost too funny! :)

From this news on Digg: Windows Vista - Deleting a shortcut is just a few clicks away....
A gallery of screenshots on Flickr detail the "simple & straightforward" (!) process! :D

Bye!

(probably, deleting some extremelly important system file would be easier ;) )

An downloading & running something like IAmAVirus.exe would be probably totally automatic, to not bother the user with annoying details! :)

Bye!

Remember, though, that Vista does not automatically log you on as administrator like XP. A Vista 'user' is restricted from replacing system files, modifying the registry, or tampering with another service configuration. Thus, the Flickr screens show a user trying to change the admin's system settings. You can easily use the UAC (User Account Control) to get around this. The idea is to make it so that ordinary users get more control over installing, updating, and changing their systems without needing to run as administrator.
