Page exclude in widget not working

I try to exclude some pages from the footer widgets/ Pages but does not work. In the widget “Pages - A list of your site’s pages” it give you to the option to exclude some pages from showing but I’ve tried numerous times to exclude them and they still appear. For example in the image attached, I would like to remove the “blog” page and the one titled " Blue Com" which is the home page… what am I doing wrong?

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

Please remove the backslash “/” and save the changes to the footer and if that does not work, please try using the page ID to exclude the pages.

Best Regards,
