homegroup icon on desktop, why?

  conrail 09:00 02 May 2015

running windows 8.1, switched laptop on this morning and the homegroup icon has appeared on my desktop, I haven't made and changes recently to my laptop or to homegroup, unable to delete, also it does not have the shortcut arrow on it, I have tried dragging it to the control panel but it wont go, dragged it to my documents folder where it creates a shortcut but remains on my desktop, it is not causing any problems but if I do want to get rid of it how would I do it? but wondering why it has appeared, all advice appreciated
