  2. Erroneous symbols at the bottom left corner of desktop icons

    I'm running Windows 10 with the latest updates. A few days ago, the icons for objects on the desktop changed appearance. The icons are correct but
    all have a symbol at the bottom left corner:

    • Shortcuts show the correct shortcut symbol
    • All files erroneously show a shortcut symbol
    • Almost all folders erroneously show a shortcut symbol
    • Some folders erroneously show "X"

    The icons for files and folders (including the Desktop folder) displayed using File Explorer are all normal.

    I would appreciate any suggestions.

  3. Green Checkmarks/ Ticks on desktop icons

    Since I have got my laptop, I have noticed green checkmarks on the desktop icons. These are irritating. I know this is regarding OneDrive but how to remove them?

  4. Green tick symbol on desktop icons

    New Windows 10 computer DESKTOP ICONS bizarre symbols that constantly change to 6 different symbols

    Brand New Win. 10 computer.

    I run Carbonite as cloud.

    My desktop icons rotate and fluctuate between:

    (I am not kidding)

    1. no symbols (just the icon)

    2. a large W (like word)

    3. green dot (like the normal Carbonite indicator)

    4. green check mark

    5. Up arrow

    6. gray X symbol.

    Any suggestions?
