Windows 7 Videos: Sticky Notes and Lightweight WMP

September 22, 2008

One thing I forgot to mention in yesterday’s posts about Windows 7 is, no there is no Sidebar.

Is it a clue that Sidebar won’t be there in Windows 7 final release? I believe it can only be answered by Microsoft engineering managers.

I tried looking for Sidebar control in systray and searching ‘sidebar’ in Start menu search box but found nothing meaningful.

In my understanding sidebar demises due to that Desktop can be used as a Widget container. If you can place and arrange Widgets anywhere on Desktop why keep a separated Sidebar for Widgets? Well the reason can also be as simple as it’s too hurry to integrate Sidebar in this round of M3 release, it may re-appear in the M4 (will there be an M4?) or something like public Beta.

Sticky Notes.

Lightweight WMP. Clicking a video file will not fire up the full Windows Media Player. Light WMP takes no time to startup, it’s not simply hiding the menus, toolbar and side panel of a full WMP.

If you open the task manager and switch to the processes tab, is there still a sidebar.exe process? Or has all of the code for gadgets been moved over to explorer.exe?
