sticky gadget

In reply to: Vista Gadget - Stickies

if you have too many gadgets to display, some will be hidden. move your mouse to the top of the sidebar area and click the right/left arrow to scroll the gadget list. if you've removed the gadget, click the + sign to add it.

p.s.: imho, the sidebar is a resource hog. google desktop's sidebar is better alternative.

i tried that...

In reply to: Vista Gadget - Stickies

unfortunately it's more serious than that. i've only 4 gadgets running so it's not hidden. i'm sure there must be a file somewhere with the note stored in it. but where it is & what its called i've no idea.

i really need to find the data too.
