Gadgetarian: Win7 Desktop Gadgets on Windows 10


Gadgetarian is an efficient, and also free and absolutely safe utility, that will let you enjoy your Windows Vista / 7 gadgets on the desktop of Windows 8 and 10.

I like Windows 10, but disabling gadgets is something I can’t agree with at all. I use the Desktop environment and I need my gadgets.

Gadgetarian adds gadget support on Windows 8 and 10 in a few seconds. You won’t even need to restart your PC! After setup finishes, just right click on the desktop and you will find the familiar “Gadgets” option, along with “Personalize” and “Screen Resolution”.

The setup includes some popular free gadgets, but you can always come here to download more. All gadgets are tested for safety and are free.

Note that Gadgetarian does not add any new abilities to the Windows system, it just enables the native gadget functions, now unfortunately hidden. This way you can keep using all of your old desktop gadgets or add new ones, without compromising the integrity of the OS.

Since Gadgetarian is not a separate program, you don’t have to uninstall anything, just as you don’t have to uninstall “copy” and “paste”. In case you don’t need your gadgets, don’t place them on the desktop! Yet, if you need to remove also the option of using gadgets, read this post.

Gadgeterian When you upgrade Windows (from 8 to 8.1 to Windows 10) run again the Gadgetarian to re-enable instantly your gadgets. You may also like to check this How to Install page.

    Simple and easy … I like that it’s not bloated with all kinds of other stuff. I discovered that it did not have the gadget I wanted, namely the simple Calendar gadget from Windows 7, but I had a copy of it (as a folder) from my old Windows 7 pc, so I just copied the folder to Windows Sidebar and voila! There it was when I right-clicked the desktop and selected “Gadgets”. Yay!
