Fair enough but it's a possible - try running a command prompt, then typing in a line of text and seeing if any gets deleted (don't press ENTER)

I am not familiar with Windows 10. What behaviour would expect when you click on it rather than remove to recycle bin? I'm assuming you are left-clicking and not right-clicking? Your mouse-buttons haven't got swapped by any chance?

Unplug the keyboard and try again. If no joy try a restore to a earlier point before you had this problem.

Is it a shortcut ? If so delete it and then recreate it.

Actually does the shortcut link to anything ?

Recently updated with win 10 or came with it? Upload a pic to get clearer advice
