Vista Desktop Gadgets

By Chris Kennedy ~ ears1991

A pack of 3 simple desktop gadgets of 128px icons for people that like massive desktop icons

Includes a build tag service like none other that was unreleased until now...


-Build Tag - A replica of the build tag in windows vista. You may think it has been done before but can those ones be changed?

-Hard Drive - Monitors Hard Drive free space and doubles up as a shortcut to your C drive

-My Documents - A desktop icon that you can use as a shortcut to your documents

-Recycle Bin - A working recycle bin and is also a shortcut to the folder

Build Tag Readme:

To change the Build Tag/String navigate to:


In the registry and create a key called "Vista Build Tag Service" and within it, create String Values of "Build String" and "Build Tag"

Right click these String Values and set them to whatever build tag/string you wish (Build Tag is set as the one on top eg. Windows Vista RC 1 and Build String is the longer bit)

You can move the Build Tag around freeley and the application will remember where you last had it.
