25 Free and Useful Windows Desktop Gadgets
Gadgets first debuted on Windows Vista. These small programs remain useful, even though Microsoft withdrew official support for them on Windows 7. They're still a great way to keep useful information at hand so that you access it at any time.
Many Gadgets originally designed for Vista work properly on Windows 7, despite what Microsoft says. Here’s a rundown for the Windows Vista and Windows 7 users out there--a list of 25 Windows Gadgets that will appeal to the power-user.
Take note, however, that not all of the following gadgets are designed to run at the same time. Every Gadget you use takes up screen real-estate, which is even more valuable on the smaller screens of laptops and netbooks. Our recommendation: Look through the list and pick what is useful to you (or even suggest some of your own in the comments below). Happy browsing, and feel free to come back here for our regular updates.
