What is the official name for that yellow thinggie on the left side of my arrow. (see graphic)
I'm writing a small how-to guide and need the actual name of this and other elements.
If anyone can point me to a link, guide/blog, which details the actual names of screen elements, that would be greatly appreciated.

They're adjustment handles, i.e. arrow head and arrow general length / width adjusting

Thanks!  Just what I was looking for.
I'm looking for a list/site/etc. with the correct names for these types of elements.

Not aware of a general reference, I assume you know the others are the rotation handle and sizing handles.

I have had a quick pootle about the net using keywords and cannot find anything that gives general info that includes such designations.  SO the info is out there but either find someone who knows or search t'internet.

Can't really suggest better.

There's not an MS style guide online anywhere. I have to actually go to MS Help folks and ask when I need to know this stuff. Like Chris, I've always heard them as adjustment handles. I think that's as definitive as you're going to get.
