    New icons after update.. what are they?

    Hello everyone.
    I recently updated my windows and after transferring some files from hard drive I see these new icons next to files, they are showing up next to all files that I have copied to my desktop. Can someone please explain what it means and how to get rid of it

    They look like the Remote storage icons for Onedrive - There was a change with the FCU, allowing files to be held both locally and remotely, and also just remotely (to save space on smaller devices). The green tick item is still used for files kept in remote and local a cloud icon for those that are only on the Net, and the Icon you display for those that need synchronizing. Other systems may use the same overlays, Google Drive, Dropbox Etc

    Use the Onedrive controls to select which files and folders are controlled by the Onedrive system

    There are lots more In Tutorials here for different aspects of Onedrive
