Google Desktop & Windows 7 x64

in Cool Technology

Good news!  Google Desktop used to have issues with the 64-bit of Windows 7, requiring some command-line strangeness to install and some gadgets that just wouldn’t work properly.  I found myself missing the convenience of the fantastic Gmail & Google Calendar gadgets this morning, so I decided to see if the situation had improved.  Lo-and-behold, it now installs without issue and the gadgets work great!  If you’re a regular user of Google’s suite of apps, installing Google Desktop and enabling the built in Gmail / Calendar gadgets is definitely worth the effort.

Now, they just need to create a quick gadget to access my Google Tasks and we’ll be all set. :)
