Minimize your eBay window - drag the icon from the upper left of the page to the desktop.



Good luck (everything ! yikes )

For some reason, my browser has stopped displaying the Ebay icon at the left end of the URL. Now, there is a little circle there stating "This web site doesn't supply identity information."

Go figure.


You can still drag that to your desktop to create a shortcut to the page. Select Restore down, next to the big red X in the upper right, drag the icon to your desktop and click the same button again.
