    Unexpected thumbnail picture on desktop

    A new picture has suddenly appeared on my desktop screen .
    This picture is of a blue pyramid shaped tower (a bit like a stylised Eiffel Towe) with two golden rings around its top (signyfying radio waves?).

    This image is over 1 inch square and is right on top of two of my shortcuts which I cannot access. as no right/left click on it gives any response.
    Any ideas how to get rid of it?

    Good morning and welcome.

    Maybe open File Explorer to your Desktop and see if it shows up there? If so Properties should show what it is. And maybe even allow you to remove it if necessary.

    Good luck.

    Open the This PC/Desktop folder and see if it's listed there.
