Cannot uninstall Sidebar Gadget
When I try to uninstall a gadget by right-clicking on its icon in the sidebar
folder. I get a window titled "Destination Folder Access Denied," with "You
need permission to perform this action." I have administrator access. Why
am I getting this message?

Re: Cannot uninstall Sidebar Gadget
Are you trying to just remove it from the sidebar?
If so, choose |close gadget| from the right click menu.

If you are trying to totally uninstall,
Are you clicking the + sign at the top of the side bar,
and then right clicking the gadget in the gallery that opens
and selecting uninstall?

Re: Cannot uninstall Sidebar Gadget
Hi Ernie,

Precisely what folder are you trying to work from?

To uninstall a gadget, right click the icon in the taskbar and choose
properties. Click the button to "view a list of running gadgets". Select the
one you want and then click on "remove".
