Windows 7: toggle gadgets on/off?

toggle gadgets on/off?

I'm wondering if there is a way to toggle on/off the gadgets? I know you can right click and show gadgets or hide them, but I'm trying to find a way to use a hotkey to toggle them on or off.

Any ideas??

Not at the moment...No keyboard shortcut is able to perform that functionality.

Here is what you do. Right click on the desktop, click on view, and disable or enable show desktop gadgets.
Good luck!

Create two batch files, put shortcuts to desktop.

Batch 1 (gadgets ON):
Code:
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe
Batch 2 (gadgets OFF):
Code:
taskkill /F /IM sidebar.exe
Works.
