# Mysterious file appeared on Desktop

While browsing the Internet I suddenly came across this file on my desktop. I tried finding out what was in the file but found that I did not have permission to open it.

Can anyone help out?

• Open a terminal, and run ls -blh ~/Desktop, then add the output here, please. – muru Nov 6 '17 at 15:02

• Like @Artyom answered you dragged and dropped a URL from the Location bar or a link to the desktop. You can just delete that file. – pLumo Nov 6 '17 at 15:10
