    Annoying box in the corner of my screen


    Hello everyone, I'm new to this site.
    Windows 10 Home Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.1039).
    I have an annoying box in the corner of my screen and can't remember what I installed that started outputting this box but Screenshot attached.
    Thanks for any help.

    It is most likely a Chrome extension. Disable them one by one and see what happens.
    Also, does it show up everywhere or just in Chrome?

    It's always there, not just in Chrome

    What do you see when you hover your mouse over it?

    The dark gray one lower right? That could be Push Notifications.

    It may be but I can't get at them.

    If you have un-ticked it, and remained un-ticked, and you still have the gray box, you may need to log off and back on. I'm not saying that's it, but some settings don't seem to take until the next sign on.
