Change mouse-over screen tip for desktop shortcut pointing to URL

I created a shortcut on my desktop that points to an Excel file on our Sharepoint server (example http://domainname/department/file.xls).  Under the General tab of the shortcut properties I can change the name to whatever I want.  This also renames the shortcut name on the desktop, but when I hover my mouse over the shortcut the screen tip pop-up shows the full URL.

Is there a way to change the pop-up to show the name of the shortcut instead of the URL?  The reason I ask is because I want to move the shortcut to the quick launch bar.  In which case, the file name is not viewable (only the icon is viewable) and I want the pop-up to show the file name.
