*Each template exists in the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT] hive associated with a file extension. Whether it is visible or not in the New menu is controlled by whether the related entry has a sub-key called 'ShellNew'.
For example on the New menu there is usually an entry for "Text Document". This is visible because of the key: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew] If you were to rename the key so it no longer had a sub-key called 'ShellNew' by changing it to [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNewOld] it would disappear from the New menu.
1. Open Regedit, and using the Find function (Ctrl+F) search for any values of 'ShellNew'.
2. Several should be found under the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT] hive, if you do not want them to be displayed rename 'ShellNew' to 'ShellNewOld'.

* Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons
Create a new string value called '29', or modify the exist value, so that the data equal the icon you want to use for the shortcut arrow. If you don't want an icon simply leave the value blank. Note: Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
