    Integrated Youtube player on the desktop

    Hey guys

    On windows 7 i used to have a widget that was a youtube player, and it was integrated on the desktop with no borders and i could have it in the same spot even when gaming, it would stay above other windows.

    It was amazing

    Im wondering if windows 10 has something similar

    Hi and Welcome to TenForums!

    You want something like a Picture-in-Picture viewer?

    Do you recall the name of the original Windows 7 widget?

    Possibly the Youtube Viewer gadget. Gadgets were not continued into Windows 8 because the underlying methodology was inherently insecure. MS provided a tool at the time to remove the gadgets from Windows 7.

    I'm aware that some 3rd-party sites claim to be able to help you get the gadgets back in Win 10 but who really wants to resurrect a gaping security hole?
