Does your desktop look incomplete without gadgets? Before that, we shared the free Gadgets Revived and Widget Launcher applications with which you can easily add gadgets to your Windows PC. In this Gearupwindows article, we are going to talk about a freeware tool, 8GadgetPack, which has 60+ gadgets for your Windows 11/10 / 8.1 / 7 PC.
How do I install and use 8GadgetPack?
Before proceeding with 8GadgetPack, make sure that it is not yet fully compatible with Windows 11, which means that some gadgets may not work on the latest operating system. However, you can still use it on the predecessors Windows 10, 8.1 and Win 7 without any problems. We personally tested a few gadgets on Windows 11 and they worked fine for me.
Step 1. Download 8GadgetPack from the official website and double click on it to start the installation as you normally do to install the software.
Step 2. When the installation is complete, check the box “Show gadgets if setup is in place“And then click on that
Step 3. Now three gadgets will appear on the right side of the screen.
Step 4. Click the Plus (+) Icon in the top right to show all available gadgets.
Step 5. Double click the gadgets you want to add and see in the right sidebar.
Step 6. If you want to remove a gadget from the desktop sidebar, move the cursor over the gadget, and when that Close (x) symbol appears, click it to remove selected gadgets.
Step 7. To rearrange the gadgets, press and hold the gadget, then drag it anywhere in the sidebar area.
8GadgetPack also allows you to keep selected gadgets on any part of the desktop. For example, we want to keep the Calendar gadget in the Desktop Center while others stay in the sidebar. Just drag the calendar gadget to the center of the desktop and release the cursor.
Step 8. Right-click the free space in the sidebar and select Options to open the 8GadgetPack options, where you configure more options.
You can configure various settings in the next window, such as: B. Align the sidebar left or right on the screen, always show the sidebar at the top, show / hide the icon in the system tray, increase or decrease the width of gadgets, and much more.
If you want to use gadgets, you are sure to fall in love with this free 8GadgetPack tool. It’s about 27MB in size, but does the job perfectly. When using 8GadgetPack on Windows 11, I experienced a delay with this software. Hope it will work just fine on your pc too. Good luck.
