Desktop Gadgets is a feature of Windows 7, although something quite similar appeared with Windows Vista by the name Windows Side Bar. These gadgets became very popular among both users and developers due to their availability right from the desktop. Most of them are intended for simple functions such as showing the current time and date and information about system status while others may come with some applications, as, for example, the antivirus software.
However, Windows 8 does not readily support gadgets. If you are one of those users who miss these widgets, 8GadgetPack is a solution allowing you to use this feature even though you are running Windows 8.

8GadgetPack works not only as a side bar allowing you to run gadgets, it also comes as a complete package containing standard gadgets and a few more. Therefore, besides the well-known Clock, Calendar, Currency, CPU Meter, Picture Puzzle and My Weather, the package also includes Agenda, Clipboarder, App Launcher, Control System and many others. Using 8GadgetPack is very simple. In fact, there is nothing new to learn. Just after you install the feature, you can use it just as you have always done.


  • It comes with a complete pack of gadgets.
  • It is easy to use.


  • Sometimes it fails to start along with the system.

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