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?

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.
