This "Default" widget is hanging out on my desktop and both left- and right-click don't tell me what it is or how to get rid of it. (Not so easy to search for either.)



Apparently this is the "desktop toolbox".

  1. Right-click on Desktop and click "Configure Desktop"
  2. Tab to "Tweaks", uncheck "Show the desktop toolbox", and Apply


  • I have been doing this on multiple computers since kubuntu 16.04 and on kubuntu 18.04, but every time I log in, the desktop toolbox reasserts itself. How can I make this stick across sessions? – dannyman Oct 1 '18 at 0:51
