    Arrows on Pictures

    After a recent update or something, on the top right of all my photo's (no matter what folder), there is two large blue arrows, pointing at each other. I have tried clicking, and right-clicking and I can't find any use for them. What are they there for?

    Do they look like this? Or this?

    Hello Robby, :)

    The double blue arrows indicate that they are compressed. Uncompressing them should remove the arrows if this is what did it.

    Compress or Uncompress Files and Folders in Windows 10

    Thanks, both of you. I give both of you 5000 blue topaz interwebs.
