I believe there is no more sidebar in Windows 7. Right-click your desktop and then choose "Gadgets" to get what you want. They just stay right on your desktop now. Makes the aero-peek function pretty useful.

I think I read somewhere that someone was able to get sidebar back, but I don't really see the point.

I know, but the process is still called sidebar.exe
Thats why i referred with the name " Sidebar " . The gadgets used to open up themselves but now they dont!

Hello Abhimanyu,

Do you have UAC turned on or any gadgets selected for the desktop? If so try selecting them again to add them to see if that helps.

NO CD found would probably refer to the fact that your DRive is empty....

i know that.. im just trying to delete the files,without putting in an empty cd.

Edit1: Wow! I just right clicked,delete temporary files. And it deleted. Yesterday i didnt have the admin privileges! :|

Edit2: MY gadgets didnt start again. UAC is set to " Only Notify When Programs Makes Changes" . I have to right click and select gadgets for them to start.

Hello all.

There's also this, but I don't know if anyone has tried it in 7000 yet; I will be trying it when the "official" 64-bit 7000 is released though.

Vista Windows Sidebar - Reinstate on Windows 7

I would like to hear if anyone has tried it on 7000 yet.

Thanks!
