I hesitate to ask, but does this relate to the Raspberry Pi?

Its a icon pinned to the taskbar to give a little help. I am thinking it must be a Win7 accessory of some kind because it appears to be off the same styling as other Win7 icons

I cut the icon out and searched for it on google images. There were a handful of other screenshots with this icon pinned, but none on a desktop or so where a name would be visible. So we are none the wiser yet.

I thought it might be remote instance but this appears to be and hand holding a mouse so that's a theory disproved

Looks like a guy punching his screen. So it must be the punch your monitor icon.

It's the icon you get when you "Type Google into Google and you break the Internet".

Maybe a display user settings icon (as in the display settings of the user, not display the users settings :D ).

Get whoever sent it to you to click on it, and maybe right-click. Or just hover over it.

The flaw in this idea is that it would in fact be the sensible thing to do

It's the 'Turn this TV into a ghetto blaster' icon.

Why so surprised? None of the responders here ever needs assistance, remote or local. :lol:
