    Restoring clock on sidebar in Windows Vista

    While I was running some programs in my PC upgraded to Windows Vista, I have accidentally deleted clock from the side bar. I can’t find an option to restore it again on the side bar. What is the actual procedure for restoring the clock?

    First of all, get into the desktop and make a single click on ‘Start’ button. This will bring up the start menu with lot of options. Navigate through that menu and click on ‘Control Panel’ option. Wait until the ‘Control Panel’ window pop up on the screen and click the ‘Appearance and Personalization’ option in it. The next step required is to click the ‘Windows Sidebar’ option. You can then view the properties of Windows Sidebar. Find out ‘Restore gadgets’ option from the properties listed on the screen and make a single click on it for restoring clock.
