Hi, I often see a little icon that appears as a little square in the top left hand corner of a blank page, that comes up on an e-mail or something else. The little square contains a red square then a green circle and at the bottom a blue triangle. I am sure that it must be telling me to do something so I can access what is hiding. Can someone tell me what I must do next, Thank you Sharonlyn

Welcome, sharonlyn:

I am not sure about this one. :thumbsup:

I think I need more details...

What e-mail software are you using? Is it after opening an e-mail.
What other applications are you using that it appears on?

Can you right click on it and get more details?

Let us know.

Is this one icon or is it several side by side?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

If I'm not mistaken, your talking about an image place holder.
Is this the icon you're referring to?
Posted Image
While waiting for the image, a placeholder for the image is created and the page continues to render.
When the image is downloaded it automatically replaces the placeholder.
You should be able to right click the icon, and select view image.
If you select properties, it will give you some information about the image.
If you have images blocked, you might also see this icon.

If it's this icon:
Posted Image
then the link to the image is broken, and you won't be able to view it, or it didn't fully load, in which case right clicking and selecting view, might bring it up.
