Prevent automatic shortcut creation for Bluetooth devices

#1 Post by RTAdams89 » Sun Jul 19, 2009 4:01 pm

After updating the Bluetooth software on my T400 recently, I discovered that the new Bluetooth software would create a device shortcut on my desktop and in the Start menu for every device I connected. I couldn't find a way to turn off this feature using the Bluetooth settings (did anyone else?), but I did find a registry key to disable it. Details and a REG file to make the changes here: http://blog.ryantadams.com/2009/07/19/d ... h-devices/

Hope this helps someone!
