Files required to hide the blue arrows "Compressed" indicator added to icons in Windows 10 November update (1511, TH2, whatever you want to call it). The process is basically the same as hiding shortcut arrows - a value needs to be set in the registry so a blank icon is loaded instead of the blue arrows image.

In the download

The download includes a blank .ico icon file, two .reg registry files to enable and disable the icon, and a .cmd batch file, which if right clicked and Run as Administrator, will both copy the icon file to your %SYSTEMROOT%/System32 directory and apply the registry change.
