    Yes. But they were "Overlay-less" (no arrows) in every Win10 build until today...using reg edits and/or the program you suggested (which HAS worked for the last couple years). Make sense?

    Also, this is the first time ANY overlay has shown itself in the navigator pane.

    Are you using this newest build and NOT seeing these arrows?

    Your software must have 'hiccuped' because that is imageres.dll icon #226, - 'resizing'

    I believe that these blue arrows means the file is compressed - certainly toggling on and off the "compressed" flag adds and removes them for me on 10565 for documents.

    The shortcut however keeps the blue arrows (or lack thereof) based on the compression state of the target when the shortcut was created. Toggling the compression flag makes no difference on the shortcut.

    Ah yes! I stand corrected!
    Good catch. :)

    Ah, yep. It means that it's a compressed file. I see the same when I compress a file/folder. Good catch Halasz.

    Compress or Uncompress Files and Folders in Windows 10

    It looks like Microsoft changed this since it used to have blue text for the file when compressed.

    So...short of uncompressing all my drives, how do I replace this overlay with something blank or delete it altogether?

    Edwin,
    I am trying to locate that icon group in "imageres.dll" using RESOURCE HACKER. Icon 226 is something entirely different and, unfortunately, there is no way to SEE the icons but one by one. How did you create the ICON INDEX IMAGE (above)?
    Or, do you have any ideas about how I could delete that icon overlay completely...or any other ideas?

    Currently (in Build 10576), the "Content" Layout View, and any sizes BETWEEN Small icons and Medium icons, do NOT show the overlay. You can access those intermediate sizes, by using a mouse and Control+Scrolling. Then, once you find a view you like, you can go to Folder Options, select the View tab, and click "Apply to Folders" to apply it to all folders of that type. Good luck.

    Be warned that I expect this workaround to not work, once they apply the overlay to all views and view sizes :)
