    How to remove a shortcut icon from folder window?
    I accidentally dragged and dropped a .jpg into the top bar of an open folder and it stays there in every folder that I open. It functions as a shortcut and opens the .jpg file when I click on it. Its not a huge deal, but still it bothers me that i can't figure out how to get rid of it. Any ideas? TIA

    Screenshot please, so we can be sure of where/what you're talking about?

    Not sure you're talking about a folder or do you mean the top bar in Finder?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
