Windows 7: Gadgets - Customize

29 Nov 2010   #20


I thing 1-2 and 7. steps unneccessary

For example if you download any new gadgets, after install you can reach them in %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets location. And them allready extracted there! and then you can apply step 3-4-5-6 and you are done!
