How do i remove the sidebar


vista
On the Windows desktop, mouse over the sidebar and right-click on the search gadget you want to remove.

Click on "Close Gadget." The search function is now gone from the sidebar; however, the search gadget is still installed on your computer for future use if you ever decide to re-add the item to your sidebar.
To completely remove the sidebar search gadget from your entire computer, follow the next steps.
Right-click on the Windows sidebar.
Click on "Add Gadgets" to open a window containing all sidebar gadgets installed on your PC, including the search gadget.

Right-click on the sidebar search gadget you want to remove, and click to select "Uninstall."
Click "Uninstall" again when a Windows notification pops up, asking you to confirm the uninstall process.
After you click, the program will automatically be removed from your PC and it will no longer appear on the listing of available sidebar gadgets for Vista

windows 7


Click "Start."

Click "Control Panel."

Double-click "Windows Sidebar."

Remove the check from the box next to "Start Sidebar when Windows Starts."

Click "Save." Now, the next time you load your computer Windows Sidebar will not start.

hope this helps

I have the gadget screen showing on my desktop, if I choose to "get more gadgets on-line" it does nothing. sometimes when trying to open a link I get an error saying...


What may be happening, is your antivirus may be interfering with the gadgets ability to go online and get more.

try the following.

Please press the windows key on your keyboard , hold it down, and press R

type in msconfig and press enter.

on the very top tab,on the right section, click on startup, then on the bottom click disable all..

then click apply, then click ok.. Now.. restart the computer..

Try to go online and get gadgets again, ideally, it should work now.

My gadgets has stopped working in windows7 how can i fix this problem ???


For windows 7 to get gadgets back on the desktop you need to minimize all running programs and make sure you see your desktop. do a right click with your mouse on any empty space on the desktop and then in the menu that comes up do a left click on Gadgets and it will open up a window with all the options you can put on your desktop. to have it display on the desktop just double left click any of them and they will show on there.If you dont like some you put up you can just hover with mouse over it and it will give you an X to close it or little wrench which allows to customize the widget it self. Another way to get the gadgets on you desktop is to go to control panel under you start button and then if you are in category view which is if you have only few icons so to get to gadgets in upper right corner there is option that says VIEW BY: and here is where you choose large or small icons and you will see many more icons appear and one of them is gadgets icon. double click it and it goes to same screen as explained in beginning of solution. Hope this helps.

Windows 7 gadgets working wrong


You dont need side bar anymore, rightclick anywhere on desktop and goto gadgets, Add the ones you want, put them where you want (side, top, anywhere) and thats your gadgets as they were in vista.

If you have installed Windows 7 beta then you must be aware of the bug that whenever UAC is switched off, Sidebar and Gadgets in Vista fails to display properly on Windows 7 Desktop. Though this is not for every machine but many users have reported this problem that their Sidebar and Gadgets are not working properly.
For older beta versions of Windows 7 there had been some temporary workarounds for the same problem. But if you are using Win7 Build 7000.0.081212 then this can be fixed using a simple registry hack which like in Vista will Elevate your Sidebar and Gadgets Process.
If you know how to play with you registry Editor then just open regedit.exe from Run command in Windows 7 and go to KEY
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
\CurrentVersion\Sidebar\Settings From there edit the DWORD value of AllowElevatedProcess and set it to 1. You don’t need to restart your Windows 7 computer after this. If your sidebar and Gadgets were not working properly earlier then they will be fixed instantly.

Clock gadget on windows 7 deleted by error.


In the Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization. Try the Restore desktop gadgets installed with Windows or Add a gadget. I'm not sure if the restore will work; adding a new clock gadget, at worst, would make the computer think you have two loaded (with the clock that is sometimes desirable to check the time in multiple time zones).

I hope this helps.

When opening sidebar windows installer opens .


It is likely some sidebar gadget you've got installed that wants to use bluetooth.

Take a look at the installed gadgets, and see if that makes sense. To administer gadgets (I am assuming the sidebar is not opening properly), but do try to start it, then:

Start
Control Panel
Windows Sidebar Properties
View list of running Gadgets
Remove any gadgets that may cause the trouble.

Want to run Gizmos and Gadgets on Vista PC


I got Gizmos and Gadgets to work on my Vista PC by copying the entire CD to C:/Windows/System32.
After that, open the "ssgwincd" folder, and inside that folder open "ssgwincd" again. Inside the second folder there will be a file called "ssgwincd.exe" right click on it and select properties. In the properties window click on the compatability tab and set the program to run in compatability mode for windows 95 and to run in 256 colors and in the 640x480 window
It should then work for you, but I would suggest putting a shortcut to the program on your desktop so you can find it easier later on.
Good Luck!
