    Mystery Icon


    I am at my wits end. I have searched and searched with no success. Has anyone seen this icon and can tell me what it is, please? Thank you in advance. ~Fosco~

    Welcome to Tenforums! I bet you think we have so much talent here, that some of us must be psychic and know exactly what you were doing to get this blue circular icon with a question mark overlaid with a square amber icon with 2 exclamation marks on it.

    Well, the blue icon usually represents help - and clicking it often takes you to a bing page on the internet, if it can find some information that may be of use to the page the help icon was displayed upon.

    I am guessing that the amber colour and the exclamation marks represent a warning, but probably more severe than a triangular yellow warning triangle with a single exclamation mark.

    However, without more information regarding the page or app that this icon appears on, I am unable to offer any more. I could guess that no help could be found for this situation but that is all.

    Give us the big picture, show us the full screenshot and let us know what you were doing and trying to do, fill in your system specs, and you might get a more detailed and specific answer.

    Right click properties? Where is it located? What happens if you click it?
