    There is no option to remove, but you can slide it to the top right corner where it gets small and does not say desktop. This a KDE desktop thing and not really an openSUSE thing.

    Or you could change to folder view. And a plain colour background,
    if you don't like geckos.

    OP already appears to be using Folder View
    But as jmcdaniel3 says - it is part of the KDE desktop. I don't think you can remove it but it can be made less obtrusive by sliding to a corner.

    SUSE Paste

    edit: there are a couple of plasma widgets that claim to be able to hide the cashew. Py Cashew and Stealth Cashew.
    I haven't tried them so can't report on effectiveness.
    To get them just click on Add Widgets > Get New Widgets and search for them.

    I had never been bothered much by the "Desktop thingy", never used it at all. But when I read through this thread I decided to mess around with it.

    I had pulled mine over to be centered at the top of the screen. So I grabbed it with the mouse and started trying to pull it downward. It didn't move, but when I got the mouse about halfway down the screen, the "Thingy" disappeared.

    And now I can't figure out where it went or how to get it back....

    Well, you can only drag it along the screen borders.
    Maybe you dragged it below the panel?
    Click on the toolbox on the right end of the panel, click on "Screen Edge" and drag it to somewhere else, or hide it temporarily to see if it's there.

    Right. It's hidden behind the panel.

    So I guess this is a way to make it invisible though it does not go away completely.
