    Remove Embedded URL from Taskbar


    Hi I seem to somehow have acquired an embedded webpage on my taskbar (no idea how). It appears to be a facebook page that I don't even follow. How did I get that? And how do I rid my taskbar of it?

    Need a full screenshot, not just some little tidbit. Along with what browser you are using. That actually looks like a theme with the designer's copyright on it.

    Hi Thanks for your reply. Sorry, I thought you'd only need a glance. The Kaytidesigns appears to be an artist on Facebook (or it's prominent if you Google it too). And it says "facebook.com/kaytidesigns". I use Firefox, as you can probably see, on Windows 8. (My PC refuses to update to 8.1). Here's a full screen-shot.

    It looks like it got set as your wallpaper. If you right click Desktop then click Personalize, then click Desktop Background can you change it?
