    Facebook - Get Messenger Side Bar

    Hi,
    Not really a software question, per se. But did not see a forum for specific website questions.

    I hope someone can help, as a couple Google searches did not yield anything useful.

    I only look at/use Facebook on a PC. In the last couple days, a really wide side bar has shown up down the right side of my screen, which shifts the "wall", off to the left of center. This side bar is trying to get me to load the Facebook Messenger app on my phone. I don't use it on the phone, I only have a plain, flip, phone call only cell phone.

    Does anyone know how I can get rid of this bar so that everything on Facebook will shift back to the normal position on the screen?

    Thanks!

    Never mind, I just found it. Stumbled on it, but I swear I looked here once, guess I missed the text. Gear at the lower right, if you click it, there is an option to HIDE SIDEBAR. May be useful to others.

    Good that you found it... I don't know if you can get away with seeing messages without installing the Facebook messenger app, which is like 200Mb, obtrusive, and a huge battery hog as it remains running in the background. I've uninstalled in on my phone.

    Thanks, like I said, I don't even use FB on cell, (NON-Smartphone user). I did just click the MESSAGES at the top of the FB page and one message came up near the bottom of the screen. But it did NOT bring back out this new sidebar. So I should be alright now.
