No; but that is making me think.......And it hurts!

So I can copy (using "copy to") the files in question to D: in Vista then copy them from D: to 7?

That's if your Vista drive is showing. Mine is on a separate HDD and originally it wasn't showing up. I had to assign a drive letter to my Vista HDD to gain access.


I must be the only one who isn't missing the sidebar itself...

Now if somebody can get the taskbar to run on all screens I would be really happy as I dont think ultramon will work.

I thought they had that covered. Hopefully it will appear in future builds.

With the Gadgets, you can drag them to display on separate monitors.
