From the Start Orb > type shell:gadgets > Then click on shell:gadgets at the top of the list

This opens the location of all the gadget folders. Then drag & drop the gadget folder you want into this location. Then right click on desktop to bring up your menu with gadgets near the bottom. Click on it to open it & see if you NEW gadget is listed

thx, but there isn't any gadget folder, as i mentioned, the gadget download from Live Gallery is a ".gadget", not a folder, normally when you double click on ".gadget"(which should be the installation of the gadget), it will automaticly install and you can open it by right click--->gadget, but what i'm getting is i just cannot install it, when i double the ".gadget", it nothing happen...
