    The sidebar is really convenient to see but ordinarily doesn't show up until you minimize everything or show your desktop (windows+D or windows+M, BTW). Windows+S doesn't show the Sidebar, but Windows+G (for Gadgets?). I thought it ought to show up when you move your mouse all the way to the right, like if you put your taskbar to Auto Hide, but that's not the case. Many of you have probably already found this shortcut but if not, its pretty useful, especially as we add more and more useful gadgets.



    Cheers,

    Pressing Windows+G again scrolls through your gadgets while Tab scrolls through functions within that gadget, if applicable. the win+G scrolling is especially useful if you've got more than one "page" of gadgets.

    Just FYI, Windows+S is used by Office Onenote to capture a screen snapshot, so that's probably why they won't use that.
