I use those gadgets . they tell me when i get knocked offline - when my hard drive is low on space - they are pretty awesome.

BUT - if your concerned rainmeter does have the exact same gadgets . you would lose some of the features [ i like my alarms saved my video card twice ] but you can still tweak the size - color [ my fave ] - and click on them to go to thier respective locations in windows. when i have to go to win 10 soon for my new build ill be using it for sure . Its in the first few pages on the main rain meter site . i get there thru the default welcome app they give you when you download thier newest version .

Like the others have said, you might want to check out Rainmeter. Over the years a couple of talented people have created skins very similar to the classic All CPU Meter gadget, one of those in particular is also extremely authentic/virtually identical compared to the "original" visually and functionally speaking - Best of all, Rainmeter lets you customize every aspect of the skin and its functionaliy and is very light (read: practically not noticeable) on system resources.

Encrypt C:/Users/username as an alternative to "In Private" Browsing
"In Private" browsing might be better than nothing, but it has no memory. I am wondering if a viable alternative might be to create a User just for private browsing and encrypt that directory in C:/Users/user? Would that let me have "favorites" that were private? And would that allow sessions ...
