Windows 7 - Build 6801 OR Windows Vista
 
 

I'm confused, is the sidebar in the picture Windows 7's or Windows Vista?
I like the one in the picture.
Thanks.

Vista Ult SP2/Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 8.1 Pro w/MC (all x64)
 
 

The pic looks like Windows 7 to me but the procedure to get sidebar back actually put the Vista sidebar on Windows 7 as it doesn't have a native one at all.

Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade from Vista Home Premium
 
 
Sidebar for Windows 7 Upgrade from Vista Home Premium.

I have read the tutorials and steps to reinstate the sidebar from Vista to Windows 7, and maybe I am just not understanding.

In the tutorials and and steps to reinstate the Sidebar to Windows 7 they keep referring to folders in Vista which I need to copy and paste over to Windows 7 folders, but I did an upgrade and I have no more old Windows Vista Home Premium folders, only the new upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium folders. Windows Vista is no longer listed.

When I go to my Program Files Folders I do see the Sidebar folders there though, both in Program Files & Program Files (x86).

But Sidebar will not open and run.

So what do I do .... PLEASE HELP!

Durr, you need to own the sidebar files, because if they uploaded it, it would be considered warez.

(In short, its your problem)

Think twice next time.
