Thanks for your attempt to help. But it is a shortcut. I am not new to using windows, I know how to create a shortcut. As I explained, all shortcut ICONS did look OK. Now the image for the arrow in the corner is apparently pointing to the wrong ICON library.
Hope someone else can help. I think I recall seeing that their is a registry entry that points to the icon library. One of the resource files is IMAGERES.DLL.
