I've got the following icon in my menu bar:

menu bar icon

And I'm unsure of its origin. It looks like it should be the CAPS icon, but I don't have CAPS Lock on. Even if I switch between it on and off, the icon doesn't change.

It doesn't do anything when I click on it, or CMD+Click it.

Nothing untoward appears in my Activity Monitor.

Is there any way of identifying what it is, or what's caused it?

  • It appears to from the app named CapSee. Check if you have that app installed.

    Do you use any external keyboard or mice and have their vendor software installed?

    You could try a screenshot tool that takes layered screenshots: one layer per window. E.g. Flying Meat’s Acorn. This will probably label the layers by window name. That should give you a clue as to the application’s name. Commented Dec 5, 2018 at 13:04
  • @NimeshNeema I have Logitech Options for a mouse, but that doesn't appear to have anything to do with it.
