    I followed the step-by-step instructions presented by DANIEL RUBINO in his article : "How to get rid of app shortcut arrows on the Windows 10 desktop".

    Only once in a blue moon do I see clean shortcut icons without arrows. It's almost always shortcut icons overlaid with black squares on the lower left corners. I had checked the Windows Registry against the steps in the article twice to find that they were all correct.

    What gives and any answer?

    Thank you.

    Deleting the entire "Shell Icons" won't work?

    I just tried and restarted explorer, but not the PC, and so far it is working.
