Gadget fix with UA Dis'd

Thank you so much for this fix.
Any recommended Registry docs for the Win 7 base??
I want to make a few changes for the "right click" op in "Computer" icon, to add Regedit, Services, Add/Remove Programs...

I have writen reg files to make the changes, but, no working.
I have Activated the Administrator Account (w/Password Protection) and Logged on as Admin, and right click regedit.exe - Run As Admin, and tried to make the mods manually, noop...
Checked "Permissions" on the Keys, Admin has full control, still no functionality.

Here is one of the reg mods I am talking about;
Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit]
@=@%SystemRoot%\regedit.exe,-16


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\regedit\command]
@=%SystemRoot%\regedit.exe
I have these, and others on all of my other computers that I work on and test on. from Win2k---WinVista x32 and x64.

My main focus is to use as much as the Security settings possible in the Win 7, and Test the Apps that I use regularly. (like AutoDesk, COMODO, CST, MatLabs and Many Electronic Design Programs (some Legacy), for the Engineering Work that I do.

Sorry Mate, they were fixed 2 days ago but for some reason they change them daily so the only way to get them is to browse my Public Skydrive which I have linked under the old ones.

This is it here if you want to check them out.

After playing with this "hack" I have realized that the "flyouts" are blocked.
Examples are
- wp-corp mail checker
Wp-Corporation
- WeatherMan:
WeatherMAN
- Agenda / Calendar
Windows Live Gallery

It works in Vista and with the "original" Sidebar in Windows 7

On my Vista laptop, I have gadgets on multiple "pages"... and I can click thru those pages using the arrow on the top of the sidebar.

On my Windows 7 desktop pc, the gadgets just pile up on the desktop... there are no multiple "pages".

How can I get the "page" function onto Windows 7? I don't want 15 gadgets cluttering up my desktop, I would prefer to see 5 (or so) at a time. Is this possible in RC1?

If you want it the way Vista was, then why don't you follow the tutorial to reinstate the Vista Sidebar. Windows 7 does not have that option because there is no sidebar.
