Hi, my name is Luke, and this is how to get icons and arrows off the computer. In Windows 7, if you'd like to remove some of the icons or arrows from your computer, what you're going to want to do is click on the start button, type in icons, and then one of the links should say show or hide common icons on the desktop. This will allow you to check off some of the common icons that are found on the desktop. If you'd like them to be shown, check the check box and hit apply. If you don't want them to be shown, make sure the check box is unchecked. Another option you can do is to actually change the icons and what they look like. You can set the icon for almost any program or link through here. Arrows however, you'll notice in the bottom-left corner of an icon indicate a shortcut. Those can simply be deleted by right-clicking on the icon and then scrolling over to delete. This arrow however is referred to as the cursor, you can change what your cursor looks like, however I don't recommend it as it can easily lead to confusion. And that's it.
