How I get the "preview" window on the far right hand side to minimize or disappear?

preview on right

so that the class extends fully to the right hand side.

If this is really a window added by NetBeans (which I doubt, it doesn't look native to me) then you can click on it to select it, then press control-w (close current window/pane).

However, this looks more like something a plugin has added. You can try control-shift-enter (show only editor) and then again to switch back. If that doesn't work then you should go over your plugins to see what added this.

I solved it by disabling "Code Outline" plugin.
