They look like that and I don't know what I did to have them change to that.
And I don't know how to change them back..

I want the normal arrow icon back, not the opened disc box thing..
Can someone please help?

Follow Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore and post back .

Is all the other system icons intact in your system? I mean drive icons etc ?

Thank you so much. That was an understandable tutorial and it was very helpful. And the drive icons are the way they should be. Thanks again.
