Hello Stonyzg, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like your shortcut arrow overlay icon has been messed up by mistake somehow. Use the program option in the tutorial below to select the default shortcut arrow and hopefully fix this for you.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
