    Desktop Gadgets turn ON/OFF (8gadgetpack)


    Hello

    I have installed 8gadgetpack and I have question... is there any way how can I turn ON/OFF all gadgets on desktop at once with something like pressing one button ?

    EDIT: ok I found it pretty simple...

    I need to get my "AllCPU Meter" and "Longer Notes" gadgets back. Used them heavily in Windows 7. Does this Gadget Pack contain them? TIA. -Allen

    " All CPU Meter" is included but "Longer Notes" is not. But if you have the gadget available (download or from archive) it can be added in the same manner as in Windows 7.

    Sticky Notes?

    It's built right into the OS!?

    Build 10547 some gadgets will not load


    After installing Insider Build 10547, I reinstalled Desktop Gadgets Revived 2.0. I started loading my usual gadgets (This has worked since the beginning of the Insider Program in October 2014) and neither All CPU Meter V4.7.3 nor Network Meter V9.6 would load. I removed them and reinstalled them with the same result. Rebooted with the same result. I uninstalled Desktop Gadgets Revived and tried 8GadgetPack with the same result. Other gadgets like Wunderground and O&O Disk Stats work just fine. Is anyone else seeing this?

    I checked and they say that some functions don't work with build 10547.

    Thanks much. Must be the same issue for Desktop Gadgets Revived. I'll try their suggestions for Glassy CPU/Network Monitor and see if they work. Another issue was that with Desktop Gadgets Revived my system slowed quite a bit after installing the two gadgets that did not appear and ran fine after uninstalling it.

    I noticed that 8GadgetPack is now working with Build10576 but, in order to have the bar correctly located and clear, you need to open 8GadgetPack Tools and select Reset all gadgets. This will resize the bar and make the bar transparent.
