Last week, I revealed a weird protection scheme around some unfinished features in Windows 7 (build 6801). I provided a buggy tool to enable the new Taskbar, then teased everyone with other features such as gestures, panning, and Desktop Slideshow. It wasn’t intentional, I just needed some time to rework the unlocking tool, which went faster thanks to some code snippets from my Vize friend surrounding the headaches of TrustedInstaller and PendingFileRenameOperations.

Awesome! Great work...the superbar unlock was great - grabbing this one now to unlock the rest. Thanks for all your effort!

EDIT:
Got it loaded up - confirmed working on a machine with superbar already enabled...and confirmed working on a tablet :) Not to mention - this app is WORLDS easier to use than the previous unlocker. Excellent work Rafael!!

Nicely found. I already enabled the improved taskbar, and I look forward to greeting myself with the hidden "goods"

This patch unlock desktop slideshow and panning as well as superbar.

1. Desktop slideshow: simply go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Desktop Background and select multiple file for the slideshow.

2. Panning for those with multi-touch screen.

3. Superbar as you already know.
