Change link in sidebar on Sharepoint site

I'm not a sharepoint person.  I've been asked to change a link on a side bar image.  I have no idea where to go to find and change it on the site.  Please see attached, and if possible give step by step directions of how to change it (where is it at?).

are you referring to your SharePoint 365 subscription or a local SharePoint server on premises?

generally speaking, you can find the section and it’s code from your site’s master page. see below the related official how-to guide for SP365. you may also simply check the source code of you SharePoint server’s main page, and search for the given phone number to locate that section.

This is sharepoint 2013.  I know how to change the main default page using expression, but this is a right hand side bar on an announcement page.  I cannot even find where the sidebar is stored in sharepoint to make the change.  if I could find it, I could change it.  Any ideas where this would be store at?

do you mind to share the SharePoint server's the URL if it is public accessible? or, can you upload the source code (HTML file) of the main page for review?

I need to change the link on the right rail that says, "Get Help Now >"

if I downloaded it to Expression, change the link, and uploaded would that work, or cause problems since it's not a master page it an announcement page.  I cannot find where it is located in web parts, columns, or anywhere else.

I have no idea if on this announcements page if it's a right rail, a web part, just a column, or a combination.  I have searched through every folder in the site contents and cannot find this box.  I have searched all the images and can't even find were it's pulling in the orange guy.  I didn't create this site and can't find anything.  Some of what I do find is not stored in the proper folder.

Correction, I just found the png it's using.  the path is ..._catalogs/masterpage/GCI/images/
bbaoIT ConsultantCommented:
here is the code for that area - <div id="secondary" class="widget-area group" role="complementary">. technically it is a web part zone of your site.

see the screenshot below.

be aware that web part zones are available on page layouts but not on master pages - the purpose of zones is to allow authors to modify web parts, and authors typically don't edit a master page.

to modify the layout, try below steps:

  1. browse to your publishing site.
  2. in the upper-right corner of the page, choose the Settings gear, and then choose Design Manager.
  3. in Design Manager, in the left navigation pane, choose Edit Page Layouts.
  4. select the name of the page layout that you want to remove the snippet to.

I was looking in the wrong place.  I was looking in the two-column layout, when I should have been in the right-rail making the changes.
