VB.NET Solution Explorer project referencing files using blue arrows

I have a project that contains several projects within it.  The problem I am having is that some of the projects have files in the solution explorer with .designer.vb and .resx that have blue arrows on them for each .vb file.  I am not sure why this is, but I'm thinking it's because the files are being referenced.  When I try to run the program in debug mode all my files are locked.  So, it's difficult to debug.  Does anyone know how I can resolve this issue and get rid of the blue arrows?

Not sure about sourcesafe but I attached a bmp of what I am seeing.  Only two of the projects have these files with the blue arrows.  Any ideas?
untitled.bmp
Click on one of that files (in solution explorer), then look at the properties windows
Write the properties for one of that files
Now click on other file that has no blue arrow, look at the properties windows
Write the properties

Any different observation ?

from the above image, this is the normal way vs displays it files when Show All Files is checked

i will advise that you set the attribute of your files from readonly in windoes

Yes, that's it!  You have to select the project then uncheck show all files.  Thanks!  I was wrong about the debug, it is working when you set a break point!
