    So I was dragging a video file around, and it accidentally landed next to the "back and forward" keys and now its permanent there.
    When you click the icon, it plays the video. -_-
    I honestly didnt even know you could do that with the toolbar in Finder.

    Anyways, does anybody know how to get rid off it?
    its just an annoyance having it there...
    I tried right clicking the icon, it doesnt have options of how to get rid of the icon itself..
    and yes, i tried dragging it down like how it got there, it would not work.

    Hold down the Command key and drag it off the toolbar.

    You can add many things to the Finder toolbar (i.e. folders, files etc.). If you want to change it back or restore it to default, choose view> customize toolbar and drag the default set onto it.

    A tip for future use with annotating screenshots. If you open the screenshot with Preview, then either choose "Show annotations toolbar" in the View menu, or choose Annotate in the Tools menu and then choose what you want to do.
