* To install a gadget, just run the .gadget file and Windows puts it automatically on your Desktop and activates it!
If you cannot run a .gadget file, your gadget system is disabled, which is normal on Windows 8 or later. In this case just get the free and safe Gadgetarian to enable and enjoy your gadgets!
To install the Gadgetarian
Automatic Edition (2.5):
Right Click the included “Setup” file (32bit or 64bit version) and run it As Administrator.
After setup finishes (in a few seconds!) you can right click on your Desktop to find the familiar “Gadgets” menu and enjoy any gadget you like! When you upgrade Windows from 8 or 8.1 to 10 or later, run Gadgetarian again.
1) Copy both, the “files” folder (you need to copy the whole folder as it is, not just its contents), and the single “Ginstall” file, to the folder “System32“, which is inside your “Windows” folder. Then,
2) Right Click on the Ginstall file and run it As Administrator. That’s all! Next time you right click on your Desktop you will see the familiar “Gadgets” menu and you will be able to enjoy your gadgets!
To uninstall the Gadgetarian
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 even the option of using gadgets, read this post.
