    Remove Dropdown Arrow on This PC Icon from desktop

    I recently noticed that I now have a dropdown arrow on the following desktop icons (This PC, Recycle Bin, Network, and My Local Folder). I have provided a picture to show the arrow on the This PC Icon. I have been searching for hours for a way to remove this drop down arrow. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    That arrow means its a shortcut.

    You could try this guide. As with any reg editing, use at your own risk.
