    Hello there, how are you?

    I'd like to remove the arrow from alias icon. It seems like the old trick to rename the icon itself and refresh Finder isn't working now with Mavericks.

    Is there a way to remove them?

    Thank you.

    This is how I found to do it...

    1. open Terminal
    2. type cd /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/ -> press enter
    3. type sudo mv AliasBadgeIcon.icns AliasBadgeIcon-no.icns -> press enter -> enter password
    4. type killall Finder
