Xp Sidebar

Recommended Posts

If you are like me and can not afford to upgrade form XP to Vista or even Windows 7 and still want the nice features of a sidebar there is hope! Desktop Sidebar is a FREE program which makes XP users able to have a nice functional sidebar! This program takes up very little resources and has many addons so you can just about find anything you need. There are many skins and customizations so you can make your sidebar your own. It is a 10.8mb download.

 

Check it out here:

This Sidebar will work with any version of Windows.

Here it is in Windows 7 x64

 

Yes you are right it does work on 7. I did not mean to make it sound like it is only for XP it is for Vista and 7 also. It is just most people with 7 or Vista would not need a sidebar as windows sidebar is better in my opinion. It is nice for XP though because it does work well with it. Thank you for pointing that out.

windows xp has a built in side bar;;

grab your my computer by the right side;;

run it into the left side of your desk top and release;;

your my computer will set as a task bar;;

do the options as you like and add task bars you like;;

discovered this by trying to move icons out of sight;;

you can pull this to any side of the desktop;;

anything you put on your desktop is added to the desktop link of the sidebar;;

now shut off desk top icons and you can enjoy the pic there;;

not working on my windows 7 ;; what a shame

This method is a usefull toolbar but it is not like the XP Sidebar. The sidebar does more than launch applications, it had many built in and downloadable addons that can do anything from tell your system status to check mail and many other things.
