Win 7- Vista Sidebar

Hey Guys:

I have win 7 now and it's on a new computer. I've never had Vista, but would like to have a Vista sidebar. Is there any way to do this since it's a clean install...not an upgrade?

Thanks!

Wayne

Hi Reeder. Welcome to SevenForums

Sidebar was a function of Vista which Windows 7 no longer has. In Windows Vista, gadgets were lined up on the right side of your desktop. Windows 7 sets them free on the screen, where you can move and resize them as you like.

For more information on Windows 7 gadgets have a look here: Desktop gadgets (overview)

Hope this helps
