Windows 7: Merge with Desktop

03 Sep 2010   #1

windows 7 ultimate x64
Merge with Desktop

EDIT: Solution Found - Scroll to Bottom

I don't doubt this is something insanely easy to fix, however either the lack of sleep or just being a knucklehead has caused me to not know how to fix it and not be able to find a solution through Google or through this forums search feature.

Anyway, Google Desktop and Vista Sidebar, allow for gadgets to be lumped into one side pane, and for it to "merge" with the desktop so shortcuts and folders automatically adjust to the correct position so there is no overlapping.

How do I enable the same activity under Win7 Ult x64?

I can just move the shortcuts accordingly, but thats really just silly.
I apologize if this has been hashed and rehashed a brazillion times here, but honestly I did search and no obvious answer popped out at me. thank you for your time, now for more coffee

EDIT: Apparently I did need more coffee, found the solution here:
