Actually, the question really is how do I get to the sidebar setting utility so that I can remove any item that I have inadvertently put into the sidebar.

Right now I have aol.com coming up in the sidebar, I know how to close it when it comes up, but I dont want the sidebar to even appear on the screen.

Opening in the sidebar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website.
You can check the Properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the sidebar (Ctrl+B; Cmd+B on Mac).
In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Details pane at the bottom right.
Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" is not selected.
