I have created a shortcut that goes to ArcPad today menu, but now I want to remove it. How does one do this?

Is this a question about working with the Windows operating system? – whuber Aug 12 '11 at 18:17

No, I did not. Thanks. Seems like it should be easier to find. – pdog Aug 12 '11 at 19:32

You either go to the SortCut Apps folder or to the project folder itself and simply delete the lnk file. You can also delete the .ico if you like.

To add/remove other elements on the ArcPadtoday screen you can edit the XML file, in case you don't want the ArcPad default button on it.
