A few days ago, this icon appeared on my desktop. It sticks near the top-right of the screen and it doesn't seem like I can reposition it. Clicking on it has no effect.

How do I get rid of it?

I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 on a 2014 MacBook Pro.

    Can you try relaunching the Finder app. Go to Apple Menu → Force Quit... (or press Option + Command + Esc). In the Force Quit Applications window that appears, click on Finder and then click on Relaunch button. See if that gets rid of the tiny window.

Please do so now, not only to show your appreciation but so the question can be laid to rest. That's how the stackexchange system works.
