    Windows 10 Desktop Gadgets - Weather Gadget won't Work


    Hello,

    I am new to the forum, and I was wondering, why does the Weather gadget not work? I noticed on Windows 7 it doesn't work either. I recently downloaded "Desktop Gadgets" for Windows 10 like you would have in Windows 7. I do not know how to fix this. I like my weather, and when that doesn't work... I know Windows 10 comes with its own, but I like to have one on the desktop as well The more weather, the better.

    If I need to give more information, I can.

    Thanks in advance!

    Gadgets have been abandoned for a long time already for it's security issues. Windows 10 comes with weather app that you can easily open up from the start menu.

    Just one thing to keep in mind, when you get an OS update Windows will uninstall this but it can be reset or reinstalled.

    You only knew about the new app but not why gadgets don't work. If you had problems making them work with 7, it will be a miracle to make them work with 10. There are gadgets out there that will work but not without issues.

    It's really not a big thing, I just wanted to let you know so when it occurs you're not caught off guard.
