Somebody I know wants me to research what a certain symbol means,

The symbol looks like a slanted + sign. Supposedly it appears in the status bar at the top. It's not the plus symbol with the two dots, and it's not the NES emulator.

It may appear somewhere other than the status bar at the top. I wish I could provide more information but I can't even find a picture of it using search engines.

Anybody have any idea what I'm trying to describe?
