Adding to Windows 8.1 gadgets and sidebar

As you may have noticed, Desktop Gadgets and Sidebar are missing in Windows 8 RTM. Personally, I don’t miss gadgets since I did not use them. But a lot of people have been missing them. If you can’t live without desktop gadgets, there is good news for you: desktop gadgets and sidebar can be made to work in Windows 8.1

PainteR has created an unofficial installer which allows you to get gadgets back in Windows 8 with just a few mouse clicks.

So, follow the installer wizard.

Note that it supports all possible Windows 8 languages, so you will get gadgets and sidebar’s interface with your native language!

Wait for the installer to finish and right click on the desktop after that. You will see the familiar “Gadgets” item in your desktop context menu. Enjoy:
