Windows 8, Windows 7 Sidebar

Recommended Posts

I don't know if it has been posted before, however this is a very nice utility for bringing up back the windows 7 gadgets into windows 8, with all the features of windows 7 plus some more...

What I like most is that the sidebar can be summoned just by sliding the mouse over the left edge and still it doesn't feel intrusive. Finally, a way to recover my beloved "Calculatorium" gadget as well as the GPU monitors.

The Web page: http://8gadgetpack.bplaced.net/ Highly recommended.

It's worth of a try, I have been testing different gadgets and it can pool the information correctly... so my guess is Yes.

What GPU Monitor you using? I rather use those instead of AIDE64.

I honestly don't know other options than the ones that are already in the gadget... sorry about that, but I'm glad you liked it, this little program really does wonders.

This person's gadgets are pretty well done. I use the Core Series, GPU and network traffic gadgets from this person on my main PC. Should this main PC get reimaged, I'll have to check this tool out so I can continue using them.

i use the orbmu2k.de gadgets and they worked well in the Consumer Preview but don't work well in the RTM.

used the asciiwolf sidebar installer to re add gadget support in rtm but the GPU and CPU gadget don't work properly.
