    can't remove user's folder from right side of taskbar ...

    A few hours ago a new icon appeared in the right hand corner of my taskbar with my account name beside it.

    I think it's my users folder. I've supplied a screenshot [removing my account name for obvious reasons but the black arrow should highlight where the icon & name are positioned on right side of the taskbar.

    I've tried to remove it without success. I don't know why it's suddenly appeared but I'd like to get rid of it.

    I've tried using the following ...
    c :/users/username/app data/roaming/microsoft/internet explorer/quick launch/user pinned/taskbar
    but it's not on there to remove.

    Could someone tell me how to get rid of it??? Right clicking on it does not give me an option to unpin.
