    Your suggestion is good but not what the OP was looking for. They found the solution that provides the same gadget functionality they were looking for.

    Windows 10 Pro x64, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Windows 8.1 Pro x64

    Just a quick note. Some gadgets (8gadgetpack) do not work properly with insider builds after 10240 (10537, 10565). This issue appears to be fixed with 10576.

    Edit: the author of 8gadgetpack has added a work around for this in v16.

    Maybe the OP wants more than what the built-in program can offer.
    To me, Task Manager > Performance , is more than enough.

    But it is not as convenient as a desktop gadget.

    Agreed.
    Personally I would rather to have less 3rd party programs than more.
    But, each to his own.
