My husband does my installs as he's very experienced with Ubuntu, which I am not. I like it and can use it and do basics.
My computer is set up with dual boot Ubuntu 13.04 / Windows Vista.
My husband set my desktop view to look like my older version of Ubuntu with a black bar across the top showing the ubuntu logo on the left with the words Applications and Places. On the right end were the icons for restart/shutdown, the date, the wifi indicator and cloud icon. That was apparently an applet.
Important online things I do in Ubuntu and I do screen captures that I move to a folder on the Windows side so I can view what I did online in Ubuntu.
I entered the picture album and cropped and renamed a screen capture I wanted to move to a Windows folder.
I tried to drag and drop this screen capture to my desktop. I dropped it too high, and instead of dropping onto my desktop, it dropped onto the black bar at the top where the ubunto logo is on the left with Applications and Places on the left side, and an applet shows the date and the icon for rebooting or shutting down on the right.
So, my black bar now shows the top lines of my png file from the screen capture just to the right of Places.
I tried to right click it to move it or put it into the trash, and it did not respond to right clicking. I tried to click it and to double click it and that did nothing.
I did a restart to see if it would be dropped then, and when the system restarted, the top of the png file may have triggered a failure of the applet to load, and so I sent an error report on that.
Can someone tell me how to remove the png from the screen capture from the top black bar?
I can't get help from my husband as he's out working and I won't see him again for weeks, and he can't stop his working to help me by phone till maybe late tonight.
SO.. if any of you can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.
