    There are a couple of issues with the Gadgets component.

    1. You must have UAC enabled.

    2. You must have Show Desktop Icons enabled.

    Hope this helps.

  • The button to set up gadgets just ignores me.

    In re of show desktop on the far right of your start bar (beside the time) there is a bar, click it.

    Thank you Ronnie.  Been checking all the forums for the answer and was unsuccessful.  Every one had the UAC had to be on, but no one stated about Show Desktop Icons have to enabled.

    By the way, the Show Desktop Icons does not show my desktop icons, it only shows the gadgets (which I personally prefer), and I could see how others might be bothered by the fact their desktop icons do not show on the desktop, do you have a solution for that one also?

    Thanks,
