My first Vista tip!
I’m loving the sidebar at the moment. I changed the options so that it is always on top and dropped a couple of useful things on there.
Clock, it’s a bit more visible than the clock in the system tray.
Remote Desktop Connection Gadget – allows me to quickly Remote Desktop into any of the servers i’m looking after
Slideshow – I use this to cycle pictures of my daughter
So i dropped the slideshow gadget onto the sidebar. Created a search to only find pictures that are tagged with my daughers name and i tried to point the gadget at the search…no not happening.
I was a little bit annoyed that i couldn’t do this. It meant i’d have to create a seperate folder and it starts to do away with the whole “tagging” feature (which i really love btw!)
Anyway a bit of digging this morning comes up with the following from the sidebar team blog
1) Create an actual folder
2) Perform a search of pictures
3) Save search to created folder
4) Point the Slideshow gadget at the created folder
5) Make sure “Include subfolders” is checked
Lo and behold it works!
