Annoying Pin it caption

I don't remember downloading any unwanted software and in fact I run Unchecky on all machines to make sure those awful bar things are not added when installing anything.

However I have now got something on the machines that provoke a "Pin it" caption at top left of any pic of I hover over or pull up to view and I am not bale to remove it - anyone got any ideas please?

Hi John,

What browser(s) are you using ?
Did you check the browser addons and extensions for anything new/unknown ?
Can you post a screen print of what you see ?

Did you look in Programs and Features, sort by Installed Date, to see if some program "updated/installed" you didn't expect ?

Thanks David and Derek yes I must have downloaded something like Pinterest I seem to remember it in an email but isn't something I would be interested so cannot remember when or why I installed it. I'll try that remove link. I thought perhaps it was something to do with Windows 10 at first but it started appearing on email pics too.

Oh and in that link there is a pic I snipped so it shows what I am getting and yes I am with Chrome.

Edit Have found the settings and disabled that Pinit thing but I cannot remember just where it came up from but at least it is gone - thanks again :)

Caption Buttons are too big
My caption buttons(minimize, maximize, delete) are too big. I went to Personalize > Window Color > Advanced Appearance Settings and chose Caption Buttons and realized they're size 24, instead of their original size of 21. So I changed it back to 21, restarted my computer, and it changed back to 24....
Caption Buttons
Is there any way o change the position of the caption buttons without going to Advanced Settings? Is there some way in the ShellStyle.dll? I need to move the caption buttons about four or five rows down, but if I move them with Vista Style Builder it just cuts the image off? Does anyone know how I...
