Deleting desktop shortcut deletes the file. What gives?

Purchased new Lenovo PC with Win 7. Set up admin account with password and different user accounts without passwords. In any user account, you can install a program (after typing in a password to allow it) and it puts a shortcut on the desktop with the little arrow in the bottom left corner. If I try to delete the shortcut, the message says, "Are you sure you want to move this FILE to the recycle bin?" and it requires a password to do so. I don't want to trash the file, just the shortcut. Something weird here, that I don't understand. Help
