>> Molly: Thank you to John Wilkinson [assumed spelling] from the CNET Forum's for passing these along, first, customizing. A Window's enthusiast and programmer named Stanimer Staminov [assumed spelling] developed the Window's Sidebar Styler, which lets you skin the Window's sidebar. You can get it at his blog, shown down here. Once you've installed it you can mix and match graphical elements of the sidebar to change its appearance or you can choose from 8 sample styles that are included with the program. You can, of course, create your own styles to share and you can download more at the excellent Wincustomize.com website. Next, if the Sidebar doesn't have enough to offer check out Yahoo Widgets at Widgets.Yahoo.com. This is the site formerly known as Confabulator [assumed spelling] and you can find more than 5,000 Widgets there from day planners, to job timers, to music players, to stock tickers, to oh so much more. You wouldn't believe all the ways there are to clutter up your desktop, so go crazy everybody. I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com and you're welcome. ^E00:01:06
