    I know what I did, I just dont know how to technically describe it to ya'll.

    Every finder window has a back and forward button on the top left toolbar, its right under the 3 colored buttons. I accidentally drag and dropped a pdf file to the left of the "back button". The whole back/forward button thing, moved itself over to the right. Now there is an empty space to the left of it, (nothing shows, like a button or icon or anything, just empty space). If I click that empty space, the pdf opens. I created some kind of shortcut, is this a feature in mac osx? If so wtf is it called? And how is it useful?

    Lastly, how do I get rid of it??

    No matter what finder window I'm in, if I click that empty spot, the pdf file opens up.

    Getting rid of it:

    Right click on the area, select Customize Toolbar.
    Drag the offending area out and it will disappear.

    Don't know why it wouldn't show as anything though as mine all have icons and spaces ... And yes you can do it with pretty much any file.

    Drag it off while holding the command key.

    As soon as I right click, the icon appeared. Gone now. Thanks!
