    Cross arrow shortcuts are shown on the icons after the November upgrade.

    Hi Cemal,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    To understand the issue better, I suggest you to answer the below questions.

    • Are you using any third party software for any shortcuts icons?
    • Is it only for the shortcut apps or any other apps?
    • Are you facing any issues with the arrows above on the shortcuts?
    Please post us back with more information to help you better.
