2. To temporarily disable the Windows Sidebar, click "Exit". Or, to permanently disable it:

* Click "Properties"

* The "Windows Sidebar Properties" dialog box will appear. Uncheck "Start Sidebar when Windows Starts".

* Click "OK".

* Finally, right-click the icon again and click "Exit".

Note that you may have to confirm your settings.
