Any help appreciated.
Hello Frank, and welcome to Seven Forums.
The traditional Windows Sidebar in Vista has been replaced by just having gadgets that you can place where you like on the desktop instead. Gadgets - Add or Remove from Desktop
You can reinstate the old Windows Sidebar though if you wanted it back. Vista Windows Sidebar - Reinstate on Windows 7
Hope this helps,
LOL, Mickey beat me to it.
