No arrows on desktop shortcuts

Just noticed, none of my desktop Shortcuts have an arrow on them and neither do newly created shortcuts. Is there a setting somewhere so they can be put back. Grateful for any help.

Shortcuts that you create have a curly arrow in the corner.

Shortcuts that come from within the Software itself, do not have an arrow.

That's what I mean, those I drag to desktop and choose create shortcut here have no arrows.

Because, if you have dragged it onto your Desktop, it is not Shortcut. it is a copy of whatever you have just dragged.

Sorry but no, when you drag and let go there is a small menu, one option is to create a shortcut. Doesn't matter anymore because they've just reappeared. Strange.

Drag using a Left Click. Open an Options Box ~ Right Click

I've noticed that, recently, all my desktop shortcuts now don't show the arrow in the bottom left-hand corner. They are definitely shortcuts - if I R/c and open Properties, it describes as shortcut

I assumed this was something to do with Win 10 recent update, or something
