    I recently noticed that I now have a dropdown arrow on the following desktop icons (This PC, Recycle Bin, Network, and My Local Folder). I have provided a picture to show the arrow on the This PC Icon. I have been searching for hours for a way to remove this drop down arrow. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

    The arrow symbol in your screen capture is the standard arrow for a shortcut, it does not mean compression !!
