I will see an X like this on random files. What is it for? Nothing happens when I click on it.
Do you have any software that adds extensions to the Finder?
Check System Preferences/Extensions/Finder and see what's checked on.
The overlay of the X and the progress bar indicate a file that being downloaded, probably from Safari or Mail. Clicking the X cancels the download. If it's no longer downloading, you may have cancelled the download in Safari or Mail and what you see remaining is a partial file. Just delete it.
I see. But the PDF file still works just fine. I downloaded these PDF's from GMail via Chrome. And clicking on the X does nothing. I wonder if it's a bug that it's still there?
It is probably a icon display glitch from when the file was downloaded. The icon status did not change after the download. Try restarting your Mac.
