How do I install this gadget?

I wanted to install the large clock gadget and I downloaded the folder but when I double click the .ini file it just opens a notepad file?

Also, is there a way to add a gadget to the start menu toolbar?

Did you read what it said on the site?
Quote:
Place the Starlight folder in your Rainmeter/Skins folder, place the Starlight.ini file in your Rainmeter folder, and rename it Rainmeter.ini.
You need to have Rainmeter installed, first of all.

But I don't want to install that visual style I just want the clock gadget

I don't even know what rainmeter is. I download it and theres no installation file or anything. I double click the .ini files and it just opens notepad files?

OK thanks I figured it out. Any clues to the second question?

That's a skin for the program Rainmeter. You need to have that installed first. Again, you seem not to be reading the installation instructions.

If you just want a big clock gadget, try this

Nah yes I understand now. I thought Rainmeter was some sort of visual style in itself so I got confused.

All I need (or want) now is the put a gadget (bbc radio five live) onto my toolbar. Is this possible?
