Text Document problem ,(win 7 , IE8)

Every thing was fine until tonight and I have no idea what I have done.
I have Text Document on deskktop and have entries in it,
I could add entries or delete items until tonight.

But I did somethng tonlght which floors me.

I opened Text Doc and found I could not add.or delete anything. The cursor is there and moves around and will highlight text
When I highlight a line or more of text it is highlited with on the left, end an icon (Accelerator) and no delete possible.

I can click on the Accelerator symbol a popup box with to list a few: Email with windows;search bing; Map with Bing; Search with Google. P{lus several others.

I have searched all info re accelerators but unable to delete or disable ths thing.

How can I remove Accelerator and get back to normal?
