I was asking internally today that it would be great to have some sort of accelerator key approach to bringing up the SideBar Gadgets when needed.
I ask this as I'm one of these crazy users that actually uses the SideBar Gadget, but I get sick of hitting START + D (switch to desktop), then click one of the windows already open, minimie it and then i've got my SideBar Gadgets in full view.
Brian Teutsch (one of the talents behind SideBar) pinged me internally and gave me the hot tip. Windows Key + Space will bring the SideBar Gadgets to the top, ten Windows Key + G will cycle through the opened Gadgets.
Life is good.
