    Bringing Vista gadgets to 10?

    I was wondering if it's possible to bring the gadgets from Vista to 10? I know why they were discontinued but that was for custom gadgets people made and not Microsofts.

    I found this site here: 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 10 / 8.1 / 8 but I wanted to know if any of you have used this and or know another way that is safe or known.

    The answer is indeed 8Gadget. Windows Vista how I missed you! For those concerned about this being safe I checked it with Windows Defender and ran it through the online virus scanner.
