    How to remove double arrows next to Icon label in a folder


    After updating Windows 10 to ver.1803.xxx I get these 2 circular arrows next to every Icon Label. They only appear on Icon Labels INSIDE a folder. When I move the Icon out out the folder to the Desktop the arrows are gone. When I move them back in a folder they re-appear. They don't seem to have any function.
    Q. What are the doing there?
    Q. What is their function
    Q. How do I remove them.

    They are NOT the usual "Link" arrows.

    Mysterious Blue Double-Arrows Added to Windows Desktop File & Folder Icons

    The fact that Microsoft released something like this with no documentation, no notice, no off-switch, etc... shows that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

    The fact that the solutions for this involve either registry hacks or widespread decompression of files is idiocy.

    The fact that people putting themselves forward as "experts" without doing even a cursory google search is asinine.

    DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU PROVIDE AN ANSWER!

    • norton has nothing to do with this
    • it involves compressed files
    • it is part of windows
    Yes Norton is one of the worst pieces of software on the market but this situation cropped up after an update so the solution
    obviously would not have been in lanedog33's 2010
    post.

    Anyone with an IQ over room temperature should be able to deduce this quickly enough.

    Mysterious Blue Double-Arrows Added to Windows Desktop File & Folder Icons

    I really appreciate your help _DKP_ but do you think that a 85 years old woman will do that? Microsoft, is it the more intelligent way to fix this mess? Again... we are building a river under the bridge. For who that has nothing more to do than use Windows
    as a LEGO, it's very interesting.
