Exclusive : How to get desktop gadgets and sidebar back in Windows 8


As you may notice, Desktop Gadget and Siderbar feature is missing in Windows 8 RTM. Personally I don’t feel any regrets about them since I am not a gadgets user. But lots of people missing them. If you can’t live without desktop gadgets, here is a good news: desktop gadgets and sidebar is available for Windows 8.

OMG, I can't be more happier. :D

Here's my to-do list when I'll buy Windows 8 Pro:

  • Install Skip Metro Suite for booting straight to the classic desktop.
  • Install Ribbon Disabler for Windows 8 explorer
  • Patch Uxtheme and install new MSStyle
  • Download Desktop Gadgets for Windows 8

Same old visual experience with better performance and new features! Good bye Metro. :woot:
