Hi, its a strange looking thing. Its in the top left cnr of the display, a white area, if you expand it slightly it looks like a wab page.
If its any help I think I pasted a shortcut from an e mail to my desk top.
Thanks

Thanks, VOG tried looking at that but not sure its what I need. When I right click nothing happens.

Right click the Desktop, select Properties. On the Desktop tab click Customize Desktop. On the Web tab check if anything is ticked and if it is, untick it.
