Q: What is this blue arrow and how do I get rid of it?

UnitasBrooks On macOS this arrow just appears, and overlays on top of any window. How can I get rid of it?

I calibrated the color on my mac display. It looks nicer but I'm not sure if its accurate. How can I tell the accuracy of a display?
 
@JBis How much do you want to spend and what is your measure of accuracy?

*I've tried cheaper, they aren't good enough. I have 2 old colorimeters, a Huey & a Smile that just weren't up to the task.

mreppySomething in macOS Catalina (10.15.1) is interfering with ssh port forwarding (needed for localhost debugging and developing against a web server system deployed in AWS). I assume something with the enhanced security features, but I've been unable to figure out what from searching and poking a...

@Tetsujin DataColor has some very reasonable ones, I’m impressed with their value if you don’t go big bucks - spyderx.datacolor.com
