I've just noticed that my desktop icons (most of them but not all) now have a wee sub-icon in the lower left corner.
Is this something new in Win10 or do I need to look for more nefarious activity?

MikeB4: Screen shot ?

Tricky, might take me a while to work out how to do that.
Not the screen shot, that I can do.
But posting a picture in here usually gives me grief.

Ok, here goes.


Edit : Oh that worked!
See the little user type icon in the corner?

Does that just indicate the Skype is active?

The 2 people overlay normally indicates that an item is shared.

If you refresh the desktop they should revert to the normal icon.
I believe its related to OneDrive (only started having this happen after activating OneDrive), I also see sync arrows from time-to-time in the corner.

Thankyou very much. The refresh has set them all back to normal.
I cannot recall activating OneDrive though, so that's a bit spooky.
