My neighbour (OS Vista) has Lumix installed - it came with her Panasonic camera.
It's been on her pc for years; I don't know how she used to access it (and it would have been very rarely) but suddenly Lumix (with all the pictures)has appeared as a sidebar, taking up desktop space. How can she get rid of the sidebar, please?
Nontek, your advice sounded logical and straightforward but (a) WHERE should I go to View? and (b)I can't work out exactly what you mean , and (b)when I get there I assume you mean "untick Sidebar in it". bUt my basic problem with following your instructions is which "View"? Can you clarify, please.
problem partly solved thanks to Nontek and the MS website! I went along to help this morning but found that deleting the sidebar completely (which is what my neighbour wants to do) seems to be impossible.
It is now no longer permanently on view; it pops out if the mouse pointer goes right up to the edge of the desktop. How can I get rid of it entirely?
The whole thing seems muddled - control panel>sidebar has sidebar ticked to appear on the right hand side of the monitor, but it is on the left.
I cannot see anything to "close sidebar" or similar.
I asked what she had done that might have caused the sidebar to appear (she is a great fiddle-fingers) but she couldn't recall anything that she had done. She thought it MIGHT have "come in" (!) when she downloaded a program from the Internet.("Free Viewer" I think it was )
Please , can anyone suggest a way of getting rid of the sidebar COMPLETELY, given the present situation and what I've already tried.
The only thing on it is Windows Photo Gallery but as that contains over 900 pics and is already on her desktop............
