DrawPad is a small gadget to use from within Google Desktop. It offers you a small blank area at the top of your Google Desktop Gadget sidebar, where you can draw small pictures using a variable-size brush (you can choose from 8 different sizes), and save it later into the most popular image formats: bitmap, jpg, gif or png. Moreover, you can choose the brush color from a standard color picker, and change from smooth to normal pen.
After a few seconds of drawing, you will notice that the draw area is indeed too small to draw something. I never used Google Desktop, but after looking around a little, I realized that you can use the "Toggle Expanded View" gadget option, just place the cursor over the gadget and you will see some extra buttons. Select the '<<' button, and the draw area will become bigger. And more, you can resize that window to get the size you want.
If you are a regular user of Google Desktop, maybe you will find this gadget useful. If not, don't bother, because you need to install Google Desktop in order to get it to work.
