    Desktop Clock and Calendar "Gadgets"?


    Is there any way to get a Desktop Clock and Calendar like the Windows 7 gadgets?

    The other gadget I miss is All CPU Meter, any thoughts?

    There is an application (free) that worked under Windows 8/8.1 named Desktop Gadgets Revived that works under Windows 10. The location is: http://gadgetsrevived.com/ You can download the sidebar and install any of the Windows 7 gadgets that are still available.

    Perhaps I need a different mindset, I think I can put a clock etc on the Start Menu tiles ...

    I installed a program that lets you have all your previous Win7 gadgets, and install new ones (it's the same extension as old gadgets)

    It found my previous TOSHIBA (Power Consumption Meter) and HP printer gadgets, so every gadget from Windows 7 that you installed will be there.
