    one of my desktop shortcuts has a green checkmark, why ?


    As the title says. It happens to only one of many shortcuts I have on the desktop.
    Wonder why and how do I fix that? I have tried restart. That did not fix it.
    I have only Windows Defender. No other av program installed.

    Hello David,

    The green check mark is just part of the icon for "Default Programs".

    I didn't pay much attention to desktop shortcuts. Didn't realize it was by design.

    Thank you.
