How to disable big picture?

Well thanks to this dumb release when I press my xbox button it opens. Now I cannot open my GFWL menu. Can this be disabled? I tried to but then steam overlay seems to not want to open.

The point is he's using a controller, he shouldn't need to use a keyboard to open one GUI, if he doesn't want to.

I'd like to know how to disable it too. The most annoying part is it flips my desktops around and doesn't flip them back when I exit.

Here's the big picture...This piece of sh*& program SAPS 1 GIG of memory. Whether your using it OR NOT. Memory mind you that should be used toward gaming.

STEAM needs to put a disable the BIG PICTURE option in Steam simply for that reason alone !!!

Microsoft make GFWL and the Xbox controller and the button is designed to either open their menu or the manky "xbox icon" on your desktop.

You want to blame microsoft for steam hijacking the button for their own purposes so it can't be used for what it was created to do by microsoft?

Bumped. Yes, we need a button to disable Big Picture.
What percentage of the steam player base hooks up their PCs to a TV?
I guess the majority won't.

And yes, try to play a GWFL game with Steam now. A game like Dark Souls, for example.
