    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?
