    Sidebar gadgets on Win10

    Hello guys. On Windows 7 I had some sidebar gadgets, like CPU and RAM usage, Calendar, watch, etc... Is there anything similar on Win 10?

    Sidebar gadgets have been discontinued.

    If you really wish to have them, you can google for them. It's not hard to find at all.

    Or, you might try Rainmeter - it's very low on resources and has a large variety of skins (gadgets). Very safe - been using it for years.

    I use 8GadgetPack.com's free offering. It supports use of gadgets that I used before (like Pandora) and works like the sidebar gadgets from Windows 7.
