Video: Windows (PRODUCT) RED: Sidebar Gadgets and DreamScene
As shown in the video, in order to utilize Windows Sidebar I first needed to deactivate Google Sidebar.
My preference is Windows Sidebar anyway - especially with the all the gadgets I run. After I deactivated Google Sidebar and got Windows Sidebar running, I needed to install the (PRODUCT) RED gadgets which are located in the following directory on your Dell (PRODUCT) RED PC:
Once the (PRODUCT) RED Sidebar Gadgets are installed, I was able to use the Gadget Picker in Windows Sidebar to add them (although they appear automatically after installing them).
Next, in order to use the (PRODUCT) RED DreamScene, I needed to start up Windows Update and download and install Windows DreamScene. Remember - Windows DreamScene is a Windows Vista Ultimate Extra and only available on Windows Vista Ultimate - or in this case Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED.
And also: remember there is a (PRODUCT) RED Screensaver as well. Just right-click on the desktop, click "Personalize" and then "Screen Saver". There you can choose the "productred" screensaver which is really neat!
With both the (PRODUCT) RED Sidebar Gadgets enabled as well as the (PRODUCT) RED DreamScene, you can proudly demonstrate that your choice of Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED contributes to helping eliminate AIDS in Africa.
