Windows 7: Custom gadget mod request..

Custom gadget mod request..

I'm wondering if anyone would be kind enough to modify two gadgets for me. Mainly, the two defult "CPU Meter" and "Weather" one that are on the system without downloads.

I have them docket on the right, but they can't be all the way on the right, there always is some free space between the "side" of the gadget and the graphics.

Could someone clip off the right space of the weather and cpu gadgets? So that the graphics can really be on the right most of the screen with no dead space.


To clarify, the top bottom, left, and right sides of both gadgets clipped off as much as possible in large mode so that they don't show any desktop dead space (except for the cpu one, which has empty space)

Hold down the shift key & then use the mouse to drag the gadget to the edge of the screen, or top corner edges, or bottom corner edges.

Everything.. is just.. so SIMPLE.
How about, instead of me asking how to do something in windows 7, why don't I make a thread asking what windows 7 CAN'T do?
I know one thing it can't do, and I'm trying to burn an iso so I can dual boot windows xp, but that is another story.

Well, I don't have an xp install disk (though my previous computer had it preinstalled), I'm trying to burn it so I can install it on a 10gb partition I made. When I try to burn it with windows image burner, the disk is unreadable. When I try to burn it with another program (using MagicISO), computer boots from the disk, it says "insiecting system hardware..." then it reboots into an endless loop less I remove the disk

Only if you find somebody with the XP Disc (same as your version) and then use your XP key code.

No no, my computer came with XP media center, so I had no keycode for it. And I know that the higher versions of win 7 have a licensed version of xp for xp mode..
Only thing I lack is the disk, and MY key for xp

Have you looked on the bottom part or sides of your computer cover. Sometimes the MS Windows Authenticity sticker is there with the numbers on it.
