Google Calendar integrates several other Google apps on the web. One is Google Maps, which is located in the sidebar and opens when you select an address. If you do not like this feature, you can disable it.
If you click on an address in an event, it opens a preview of the location in the right sidebar. To open the location on the Google Maps website, click “Open in Maps.”; This is an extra step that some people may want to avoid.
Fortunately, it is very easy to eliminate it. If you are not familiar with the sidebar feature of Google Maps, this is how it works.
Go to the Google Calendar website in a web browser and find an event with a location.
Clicking on the link opens the sidebar with a Google Maps preview of the location. Click “Open in Maps” to see the location on the Google Maps website.
To disable this, you simply need to hide the sidebar. Close everything that is open in the sidebar so that you only see the app shortcuts.
Then click the arrow (>) at the bottom right to hide the sidebar.
Now, when you click on an address, it takes you directly to Google Maps.
