Hello Jim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like the shortcut arrow overlay icons is messed up. You can use the tutorial below to see if it can restore it for you. You can then remove it afterwards if you like using the tutorial as well without have the overlay icon like it is now.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
