I just reinstalled the ones I already had for Windows 8. I'll have a look and see if there are changes.

 

Thanks! I posted to main :)

http://8gadgetpack.net/ This is also a good software to get your gadget working in Windows 8 and 8.1. It's what I've been using. Glad to see that more people are getting gadgets working.

I alwyas use the Addgadgets.com CPU Meter gadget, stock Weather gadget, and Stocks For Win7 gadget.  I'm thankful that Winaero has updated their software for 8.1.

 

Sucks that MS doesn't recognize that they should include the OPTION to use gadgets if you want.  Of course, they are all about removing options and forcing users into what they prescribe.
