    desktop gadgets do not load on windows start-up


    Since about a couple of days ago, every time I start windows, it does not load the desktop gadgets automatically. To temporarily solve this, I have to type "desktop gadgets" in "Search the web and Windows", then click on "Desktop gadgets", the desktop gadgets windows pop-sup and then my two gadgets show up. They are the Slide Show and the Chameleon Weather. These used to load automatically at windows start-up, but now they don't. I have Windows 10 Home. Please help.

    Hi lauraa. Welcome to the TenForums @lauraa

    It's likely you went through a major upgrade, likely Creators Update. I'm not 100% sure. You should be able to see your history in Settings, Update & security, update history.

    Please have a look at these two threads.

    8gadgetpack just recently had an update to version 23. So, if you were using an older version, you need to download and install the updated version.
