Default "file and folder tasks" blue panel

I did something today which made the blue panel appear on the left of My Documents folder. Whenever I go into My Documents or a similar folder, there is this blue panel on the left of the screen which has 'Music Tasks', 'File And Folder Tasks', 'Other Places' and 'Details'. I know you might say that this is normal, but It never used to be there and I would be very grateful if someone could tell me how to remove/turn off this feature.

Thanks!

to make the "blue panel" which is called common tasks reappear, go to my computer, tools -> folder options, and click "show common tasks".

Here is a picture to make it easier:
