Create a new folder with the name ABC
(of course you can give any name).
Open the command prompt and rename it to one of the following:

  • .{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} (= My Computer)
  • .{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103} (= My Documents)
  • .{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D} (= My Network Places)
  • .{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} (= Recycle Bin)
  • .{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D} (= Internet Explorer)
  • .{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} (= Control Panel)
  • .{D20EA4E1-3957-11D2-A40B-0C5020524153} (= Administrative Tools)
  • .{00020D75-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (= Inbox)
  • .{D20EA4E1-3957-11D2-A40B-0C5020524152} (= Fonts)
  • .{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} (= Network Connections)
  • .{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} (= Printers and Faxes)
  • .{7BE9D83C-A729-4D97-b5A7-1B7313C39E0A} (= Programs Folder)
  • .{E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD} (= Scanners and Cameras)
  • .{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} (= Scheduled Tasks)
  • .{48E7CAAB-B918-4E58-A94D-505519C795DC} (= Start Menu Folder)
  • .{7BD29E00-76C1-11CF-9DD0-00A0C9034933} (= Temporary Internet Files)
  • .{BDEADF00-C265-11d0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} (= Web Folders)
  • .{6DFD7C5C-2451-11D3-A299-00C04F8EF6AF} (= Folder Options)
  • .{00020801-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (= Folder)
  • .{00021400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (= Another Folder)

Important: include the point and nothing before that!

Example: "rename ABC .{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"

Now wen you will see that the icon of tht folder has changed (No name) to My computer Icon.Now Make a shortcut to that folder, change the target and icon and you have a nameless shortcut.

I tested it on XP so i have no idea tht it will work on 98,ME....
