    Windows Vista tip: Sticky Taskbar clock/calendar pop-up 

    Wouldn’t it be nice if you could ‘sticky’ the Taskbar clock/calendar pop-up in Windows? Very useful when you want to refer to the calendar while working in a different application. Vista allows you to do this, sort of. Here’s how:

    • Click on the Windows logo (Start button) to display the Windows start menu.
    • Click on the Taskbar Clock to display the Taskbar clock/calendar pop-up.
    • Click on the Windows logo (Start button) again to hide the Windows start menu.

    (With the help of the keyboard: Win key –> Click on taskbar clock –> Win key)

    The Taskbar clock/calendar pop-up is now sticky! You can now switch to any other application, but the clock/calendar pop-up stays on screen and on top of all other windows.

    Click on the Taskbar clock again to hide the pop-up.

    This ‘feature’ is probably a bug and may be removed (i.e. fixed) in the next version of Windows. Enjoy it while it lasts!

      vista has a lot of good features like adding clock, calendar.. but it is not as user friendly as xp is.. so even after gr8 features, i prefer xp..
