    Desktop Icons - White Box


    a little white box has appeared on my desktop in my icons. When I click on an icon the box ticks but I have to tick again to open the link. Its a minor annoyance, but how do I get rid? I think it might have been something to do with winaerotweak but unsure.Desktop Icons - White Box-tick.png

    Thanks Cliff, the solution. I suspect it might have been my fault.

    I'm glad it was that easy
    Personally I can't stand those checkboxes either.
