    Is this a folder view that you created? The arrows indicate those files are links.

    Its even easier to have your desktop set as "folder view" so that it acts like real desktop.
    From there you can go into your menus and drag the program to the desktop "copy here" , giving you a clean icon, without a shortcut arrow.
    Though you might notice a red "!" and then you'd have to give it execution permissions.
