Displaying a WordPress Widget on Specific Pages

Sometimes when you a creating a WordPress site or blog, you only want a widget to show up on specific pages or page types.  This used to be needlessly difficult, where you would need to edit your theme manually for it to work.  However, there is a new(ish) plugin called Widget Context, which allows you to pick specific pages or page types on which you would like a widget to be shown.
