Windows 7: Shortcut to Show Sidebar (icon not windows+G)

Shortcut to Show Sidebar (icon not windows+G)


I'm looking for a way to have something pinned on my taskbar (like a shortcut) to display sidebar, something that works like windows+G.

So far the best I've guessed is to create a shortcut with arguments, the problem is I can't find wich argument shows sidebar's gadgets, just to show their wizzard (/showGadgets).

Anyone knows how to find the argument?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

C:/Program Files/Windows Sidebar/sidebar

right click on sidebar, and Pin to Taskbar.

This will also allow you to pin stuff to the taskbar;
