Red arrow shortcut glyph on icon in Windows

Home / Blogs / Red arrow shortcut glyph on icon in Windows

After using the hardlink (instead of symbolic link in Link Shell Extension) I noticed this Red arrow shortcut glyph right on the source file from which I created the hardlink to other location. Strangely, Windows Explorer didn’t show the hardlink indication however XYplorer showed this clearly. You may mistaken that red arrow is a shortcut but it’s actually the source file.

Red arrow glyph appearing on XYplorer but not in Window explorer for hardlinked source.
