Just in the past couple of days I started noticing this new icon in my task bar.  I'm pretty sure it's not legit.   Please advise.  Thanks!!

Hello redleader74,

 

  1. Hover the mouse cursor over the icon and wait a few seconds. A tool-tip will appear, showing you the name of the app that the icon is for.
  2. If the tool-tip doesn’t show up, you can right-click the icon, and the context menu will show you the name of the app that the icon is for.

Looks like it's a very recent new feature Microsoft added.

If you don't want that image to be shown:

 

Right-click on the Taskbar. Hover the mouse arrow over "Search". Uncheck "Show search highlights".
