Desktop Icons Windows 7

I can't remember the desktop icons in Windows 7 do they all have an ARROW in them except for the Recycle Bin. Thanks for all your help.

If they are a shortcut, they generally do. If you want to remove them, try this: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...e-restore.html

The arrows mean short cuts. I have short cuts on all except the recycle bin. One of my accounts shows computer without the arrow. Hope this helps.

Since you appear that you may be new to windows 7, I would like to welcome you with a little information that you did not ask for. If you knew this already, pass it on to another. If it is new to you, hope that it helps. Left Click on any of those shortcuts, press the cntl key, then with the mouse wheel, you can increase or decrease the size.
