    Green Checkmark on my apps icons on desktop !?

    I just saw that there was a green check mark on some of the application icons on my desktop!
    Never seen this before! And then suddenly gone! Anyone knows what this is?

    Green checkmarks just appeared on my desktop icons today, too. I think this problem has something to do with OneDrive. I solved the problem first by disabling One-Drive integration (https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...ndows-10-a.html). Then I removed One-Drive from the navigation pane (OneDrive - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 10). Both are Brink's excellent tutorials. Not sure if you need both, but they worked for me.
