Hello, my name is Benjamin Hall. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I'm having a problem with my Desktop, the Desktop Shortcut Icons are missing (unknown icons).

The image below will understand what I mean...



Thanks!

Hello Benjamin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Your default shortcut arrow overlay on the icon has gone missing. You could use the tutorial below to change the shortcut overlay back to the default arrow to fix this.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
