    Hi

    this is not another windows is stealing mac idea's debate thread.

    I'm just if I can find a widget that lets me do this.
    Windows 7 has this really cool widgets section where I can place things like sticky notes, calendar, weathers etc on my desktop.
    Mac's widget feature though can be activated or hidden with the mouse wheel click.
    I find this small feature to hide and show your widgets with a click of a mouse very convenient and user friendly.

    I'm wondering if windows 7 has this feature in their settings (perhaps I missed out) or perhaps they didn't thought of this?
    if so can I be directed to the setting that allow me to hide and show my desktop widgets.
    If windows doesn't' have it, can I tweak it or a software that allow me to do this?

    here's an example of what I am talking about.

    thanks.


    updates.

    I know when you right click on the desktop, you could select the settings to hide gadgets. which of course works well enough, although less appealing than one simple click or "ctrl + wheel Click" it's these little things that makes using a computer feel great easy and nice.

    I've found a software that somewhat does this for me. btw. although I have not tried it.
    any other suggestions are welcomed. perhaps Microsoft would add this into their SP1 release?
