Is there a setting somewhere so they can be put back. Grateful for any help. wee eddie 13:34 07 Apr 2018 Shortcuts that you create have a curly arrow in the corner. Shortcuts that come from within the Software itself, do not have an arrow. wescliff 13:46 07 Apr 2018 That's what I mean, those I drag to desktop and choose create shortcut here have no arrows. wee eddie 14:33 07 Apr 2018 Because, if you have dragged it onto your Desktop, it is not Shortcut. it is a copy of whatever you have just dragged. wescliff 14:46 07 Apr 2018 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. wee eddie 15:25 07 Apr 2018 Drag using a Left Click. Open an Options Box ~ Right Click AroundAgain 17:43 07 Apr 2018 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 [DELETED] 17:49 07 Apr 2018 Usually fixes itself after a reboot. However a lot on the net seem to be irritated by the arrow hence mrcalif 's post. Just a bug I think. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
