Desktop Icons Blue Arrows


  • After my pc did an update my desktop icons have been replaced with big blue arrows.

    How do I get my icons back.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    According to my research, the double blue arrows indicate that the file is compressed. You can test on another file by going right-click -> Properties -> Advanced -> Compress to turn it off/on.

    Best Regards,
