gadgets for windows 10 – Microsoft Community

Hi Shiv. I’m Greg, an installation specialist and 8 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

There are no gadgets in Windows 10.

But you can install 8 Gadget Pack which works fine:

You can right click on it’s dock at the right side of screen to close it so the gadgets are free-floating.

They are then available to change or add new ones by right clicking the Desktop.

The popular Windows 7 weather gadget is available to add here:

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it’s resolved.

I am a volunteer and not Microsoft.

Over 100,000 helped in forums for 10 years. I don’t quit for those who are polite and cooperative.

What is Ecommerce?

Article Rating: 3 / 5
Votes: 1816

Electronic commerce or ecommerce is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It covers a range of different types of businesses, from consumer based retail sites, through auction or music sites, to business exchanges trading goods and services between corporations. It is currently one of the most important aspects of the Internet to emerge.

Ecommerce allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance.

Business to Business or B2B refers to electronic commerce between businesses

~ Best Ceiling Fans | Top Models in 2020

We selected the best ceiling fan by focusing on a narrow range of criteria — fan size, the number of blades and blade styles, mounting options, controls, and accessories. While fan size is something you need to compare against the size of the room where you plan to install a ceiling fan, the remaining criteria will be important for anyone thinking of purchasing a ceiling fan. Blade styles refer to aesthetics and will be important if you’re focused on matching your ceiling fan to your decor. Meanwhile, mounting options are going to be critical whether you plan on flush mounting or downrod mounting your ceiling fan. And finally, controls will be important if you want a remote-controlled fan whereas accessories can add to your fan’s functionality.

Because of the above, we selected the Hunter 53091 Indoor 52-Inch Ceiling Fan as our Top Pick. Although this model is best suited for

    Keep Your Child Safe By Learning About The Internet And Children


    Are you the parent of a child who uses the internet or the parent of a child who will start using the internet soon?  If you are, you should know that the internet is a great way to stay up-to-date on the news, do research for school projects, and communicate with friends, but it can also be very dangerous.  As a parent, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child stays safe online.  Unfortunately, for this to happen you must know your way around a computer and the internet.  Do you?

    A child should never know more than a parent does about the internet.  At the very least, you should know about the same.  If you are looking to block adult websites or websites that have offensive language, it will not do you any good if your teenager knows ways to get around the parental controls that you

    Proper Gadget Etiquette: 3 Rules

    Nothing says “rude” like checking your phone, tablet, or laptop during a meeting. On top of being disrespectful to other attendees, it can destroy a meeting’s chemistry. In the middle of a recent presentation, for instance, I saw an attendee tap out a text message on his phone. Then, I heard a buzz and a corresponding giggle across the table. The exchange made me wonder how much either person valued the meeting and the speaker. Are these the kind of people I want to work with? The answer is, quite simply, no.

    This might sound like the grumbling of a cranky old Luddite. In fact, I’m the founder of a marketing agency that specializes in digital and mobile marketing. In our office, there is a very clear understanding that good etiquette and common courtesy trump your Twitter feed or Angry Birds rank. Here are three basic rules of gadget etiquette
