Arrows in the icons of files that I just added

Post by tsnelling »

Why are there arrows in the icons of the new .htm, and new .gif, that I just added to my project?
What do the arrows mean?
Apparently I did something wrong, how do I correct this?

Hello Tim,

The arrow in windows usually means a shortcut. Eclipse is just reporting the icon per the type of thing you put in, its not something it is interpreting. So to me that looks like what you dropped in is a windows shortcut to a gif, not the gif itself. Just my first guess. To fix it, delete the shortcut, then copy in the actual .gif file.
