Gadgets in Windows 8/10

Post by ShinyElGhosteo » Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:23 am

Is it possible to do a video about bringing back the gadgets from Vista/7 to 8.1/10? I seriously loved those things.
This is my signature.

Microsoft discontinued Gadgets after Windows 7 for a reason. Security. Gadgets tend to have exploit risks. Due to this, you cannot obtain Gadgets anymore from Microsoft's website...

You can download a third-party program to get gadgets. Here's a good application I used to use: http://8gadgetpack.net

HP Stream 13 (2014) (Specs: http://engt.co/2kruSvC)

8GadgetPack is the most common way to bring the original gadgets to 8/10, but there are alternatives (such as Gadgets Revived). I think it would be interesting for you to do a video about this, Michael! :D
