  • Question

  • I am unable to add gadgets all together with Windows 7.  After first installation the gadgets worked just fine, after changing the wall paper they disappeared and won't come back at all.  I have tried to set the wall paper to default but nothing happened.  Any suggestions or could this be a bug?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hi leoisright

    In addition to the excellent advice from ChobyMX, if you have the Show Desktop Icons" disabled, this also disables the Gadgets component.
