What is this menubar icon? I don't remember seeing it before, and it doesn't seem to offer any explanation of what it is.

menubar icon with NW-SE double-headed arrow

The inverted triangle (▼) in the upper left doesn't do anything when clicked. Typing in the [Search] box only changes [All Programs ▶] to [◀ Back].

  • That's an app you have installed. If you mouse over the icon (while it's not expanded) and wait a second, a dialog of which app it is from should appear.

    Yes. You can go into VMWare's settings and disable it if you'd like. Jan 25, 2017 at 4:00
