Windows 10: Trouble with shortcut icons

    Trouble with shortcut icons


    My shortcut icons (which I created on the websites) are empty. When I go into their "properties" the target is a google app. When I try to change the target to the appropriate web address I get an error message that target is invalid. Is something interfering with me?

    If saving to the desktop, delete them and use a favorites folder for bookmarks.
