    New double blue arrows for shortcut overlay?


    My shortcuts all have a new double blue arrow overlay since upgrading to Windows 10565. None of my older fixes (reg edits, etc) seem to work getting rid of this new visual change.
    Any Ideas

    That's one of the tweakers I tried. It doesn't work with this build of Windows 10...or should I say, it doesn't work for me. It is, afterall, over 2 years from its last upgrade.

    Hello Kevin,

    You might see if an option in the tutorial below may be able to help.

    If not, then please post a screenshot showing these files and what location they are at to see what may be happening.

    BRINK,
    Here is how they look. The unique icons are from me, the double arrow overlay just appeared last night after the upgrade to 10565.
    I tried your reg. edits 1st thing today...to no avail.

    Those don't appear to be for indicating that they are shortcuts.

    Instead, it seems to be from some program to indicate that the file/folder has been synced, scanned, or whatever.

    Brink,
    The second image (large icons) is of some of my quick link shortcuts once I open File Explorer. The top is of the navigation pane folder display.
    Sorry for the confusion.
    The double arrow overlay does NOT occur on the Start Page shortcuts.

    Edwin,
    Please scroll down this thread. I was unclear. The double blue arrows do NOT appear on the Start Screen.

    Did you use a 3rd party application for the unique icons?

so in ten (for some unholy reason) When anything in firefox uses the webcam there's a horrible and pointless overlay of the firefox logo next to a generic camera picture surrounded by orange. Any way to stop this or delete the associated overlays...
This option seems like a no brainer. It would be one click to get to the adjacent desktop.
As you may be aware of, windows 7 and windows 8 only allows for 15 icon overlays to be used by such programs as: Dropbox Tortoise SVN Mega I wonder if this limit has been increased in windows 10? Reference: Windows 8 Max Overlay Icons

I hate those ugly shortcut arrows and this, from XP on. Found this little tool to clean them up while on XP: FxVisor but, it is now called Vista Shortcut Overlay Remover. Still works great even on 10 :
