lenovo icon display

I have an icon display on my screen and I don't know how to remove it (see pic).  I have a Lenovo T540p. Thanks

That is Lenovo Hotkey. It is benign and the display should disappear after a few seconds. Does it?

If not, run either Companion System Update or ThinkPad System Update and update your drivers. Hotkey should update if it is old.

Once done, it should work properly.

If you wish to uninstall Hotkey, go to Device Manager, System Devices and find Fn and Function keys. You can uninstall it there. ThinkPads like to have Hotkey installed and the newest version works well, so I recommend updating and leaving it.

That is On Screen keyboard status icons for Caps lock / Num lock.

To turn it on or off:

1.  right-click on desktop  >> screen resolution
2.  click on "advanced settings"
3.  click on the "On Screen Display" tab
4.  uncheck the box Enabled on-screen display
Jackie ManCommented:
Go to the panel to adjust resolution (right-click desktop, select "Screen resolution").
Click "Advanced settings".
Select "On Screen Display" tab in popup.  At the bottom, it shows options for both the CapsLock and NumLock options. Adjust both of these settings to "Show the indicator for a few seconds."  
Click OK.
