    This just started happening, when I mouse over my icons in the dock, there are transparent arrows on the left and right side of them.

    Anyone know how to fix this? Or what it means?

    See attached screenshot of the words "System Preferences" with the arrows pointing inward.

    Thanks

    I see the triangle under the name, but nothing to the sides. If you're talking about the darker gray coming in on the SysPref icon, that's in the icon itself, not part of the dock presentation uniquely.

    Doesn't look right to me. Have you changed any system resource files or anything like that? Have you tried repairing permissions and restarting?

    I accidentally moved the "Downloads" folder from the dock into the trash when I was making a window larger. So I restored that folder and the arrows have shown up ever since.

    Seems strange, I've never seen it happen. Give what I said previously a try, you can run a permission repair from /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app.

    They aren't arrows but part of the dark transparent background that hovers over the dock icons when you place your cursor over an one.
    This is what it should look like:

    Good observation. I didn't have anything to compare it to. Any idea how I fix that? I tried to restart, but it didn't fix it.

    I didn't find the cause of the problem, so I just restored all my settings using Time Machine. :)
