    Arrows on desktop shortcuts have disappeared

    As the title says ... the arrows on my desktop shortcuts have disappeared.
    I don't know why.
    And not all of them are gone.

    Not sure about the arrows but the differing icons depends on the file type.

    This is Excel 2016 .xlsx, .xlx, .csv and .xlsm

    It looks like your "Bank" spreadsheet contains macros (or is saved as .xlsm anyway) and you are running something other than Office 2016.
