    Can't find Gadgets

    When I right-click my desktop, Gadgets no longer shows in the context menu. Why did this option disappear, and how can I get it back?
    I generally don't have any gadgets or sidebar on my desktop, but I'd like the option of adding them, and now I can't do that from the context menu.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Unless the hotfix update was installed at some point I don't know. You might like to try an alternative that is still being updated and keeping a more healthy reserve of gadgets like 8gadgetpack.net

    Thanks, F.U.N, but I've found the solution. I had the Windows gadget platform unchecked in Control Panel/Programs and features/ Turn Windows features on or off.

    I've got a solution that works for me....... Just go to Microsoft and download Microsoft FixIt 50907 and the download will bring back your gadgets once you restart...... That makes my Windows 7 laptop and me very happy that my info gadget friends are back and letting me be informed once again....... Good luck guys.....
