How to hide Desktop icon to the right of the clock in Task Bar please?

Hardly an important issue but I would like, if possible, to hide or remove the little blue rectangular Desktop icon that lives on the edge of my screen just to the right of the clock in my Task Bar.

Is this possible at all please and if so how would I go about it please?

All and any help or advice most gratefully received
