I have no idea what it is i do from time to time but suddenly there will appear a horizontal line about two inches from the bottom of my screen. Below the line will be a couple of document icons maybe or perhaps a programme icon. This is not the dock bar. It is further below. It is not launchpad, It is not mission control.
This happened in all three version of Mac OS i have had and i am now on mavericks and a day or two ago the same happened.
When i tap one of the little icons, it brings the docuemnt up.
It is not a fault, but some little known feature I suspect!
Anyone else ever seen it? I contacted an apple agent and they didnt know what it was for either.
