The quick edit button or wrench icon shows up on the right side of Blogger widget area and at the footer location. With this icon, you can easily make any changes to the widget or completely remove it without going into the layout section in the dashboard.
This quick editing tool icon in Blogger is visible to the Blog admin as well as the visitors but changes can only be done by the admin or author. This wrench icon is a very handy feature for Bloggers but it also has some negative impacts on your site’s SEO, loading speed, and look of your blog.
These quick editing icons are just automatic images showing on your blog and do not have any metadata(alt and title tags) associated with them. So, removing them from your site is a good option.
