8GadgetPack is a small utility with which you can install the original Gadget program files on Windows 8. The installer will only install the original Microsoft files and set the necessary registry entries to make the gadgets work again.

The program is supported on all versions of Windows 8, except Windows RT and the beta of Windows 8 (the beta still contains gadgets).

Guest #40915853 This is a good program, but the gadgets keep getting shifted around instead of staying in one place permanently. The software "Glue" needs improvement.
