This simple plugin allows you to disable any sidebar and dashboard widget for the current WordPress site you are on. It provides a simple user interface available to users with edit_theme_options capabilities (usually Administrator role) available under Appearance -> Disable Widgets.

I only use 4 widgets and change them around all the time. Both my admin and widget areas are now clean and fast. Wonderful little bloat removal tool. Thanks!

I tried several other plugins to disable the junk on my client's dashboard. For some reason, none of them worked, and older methods from Codex and even recent articles still didn't work. This plugin, however, DID. I actually came all the way here just to give this a five-star. Well done.

I've been getting annoyance on the growing amount of default widgets (I'm looking at you JetPack) but didn't realize there was an easy way to get rid of them till someone linked this in one of the WP FB groups. Removed 27 of them. Dang, I think that's pretty invasive! Thanks for making this possible.
