Use Vista style sidebar
I am considering upgrading to Windows 7 (x64) in the near future. I have downloaded the free trial and have run into several problems. Most I have found a workaround for. One of these is the sidebar. In Windows Vista the sidebar can be displayed above open windows by pressing "˙ + Space" (see attached picture). However in Windows 7 the gadgets are glued to the desktop. I cannot see them without minimizing all open windows. I want to have the option to have them on top on command. For example I am streaming an online movie and want to monitor my bandwidth, or rendering video and want to monitor CPU usage. How can I enable to old style sidebar?
