    Choose or re-choose your desktop background image.

    Okay. Sorry, I did not understand the issue.

    This symbol (two blue arrows) indicates that you have chosen to compress files or folders using NTFS compression. If you remove compression, the arrows will also revert to normal.

    To compress or un-compress files or folders:
    1 - Right-click on the files or folders, Properties
    2 - General, Advanced
    3 - Modify the compression options

    I hope this helps.

    when I imported (by downloading or via bluetooth) any files in my surface pro the arrow sign will show in every file. It is painful to remove this sign again and again. Is there any solution to this thing? please help me!

    If your hard drive is compressed, all files imported will be compressed, until you deliberately uncompress them.

    When you copy or move a compressed NTFS file to a different folder, NTFS decompresses the file, copies or moves the file to the new location, and then recompresses the file. This behavior occurs even when the file is copied or moved between folders on the same computer.

    Hello, @Golam Kibria Rafat,

    To choose option to Compress or Uncompress Drive
    1 Use Cortana search for "This PC" then Enter.
    2 Right-click on Local Disk (C:) then choose Properties.
    3 Look for the box to tick marked "Compress this drive to save disk space", and adjust if necessary.

    See the illustration:
