  1. Weird Icons in Windows 10


    I brought this up before but did not have a screenshot so the answers I got were not in regards to what I actually am trying to resolve. I have a screenshot now of the issue. Somehow the Shortcut arrows have been changed to what is in the attached screenshot. I can't figure out how to get rid of this different look. Not sure they why these show up this way. I believe my girlfriend is saving them to her desktop so not sure why there would even be a Shortcut Arrow. I have never seen this before so not sure what the story is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Jeff

    :)

  2. Windows Icons Weird

    Well in the past few days, I was tweaking and now something weird happened. Windows made all the icons become selected blue see in the pic? It is weird, even when I don't click on them they are. Is there a way to fix this?

    Weird Icons in Windows 10

    Windows 10 desktop icons not in order

    In ccleaner, did you uncheck cleaning the icon cache... have not used in a while; however, I think that is what the option is called.

    Now, if you are setting the icons and they move after you have set the settings and not changed them... you may have the "Random Windows 10 Icon movement problem".
    Some people have this and some don't.

    Here is a thread on the problem at Windows10 forums: Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving
