Go Gaga Over Microsoft® Windows® 7 Gadgets
Â Get Windows 7 Desktop gadgets that will blow you off your mind!
Gadgets on a desktop provide added functionality and Microsoft has been instrumental in handling various productivity and fun gadgets for its Windows 7 OS desktop.
Gadgets were first introduced with Windows Vista and they would run on a Windows Sidebar. However, in Windows 7, a Sidebar is not required and gadgets can be displayed on the desktop without the Sidebar running.
There are gadgets galore for Windows 7, but not all of them are useful. It doesn’t really make sense to download gadgets in bulk and only keep a few after using them for a while. Here, we are listing the three gadgets which are most popular and productive with Windows 7 users. These gadgets enhance and help add to the work-productivity of your Windows 7 machine.
1) All CPU Meter
This gadget keeps you updated with information about system resources. The All CPU Meter gadget comes in handy when an application is hogging the resources of your PC. It provides version and update notifications, supports upto 8 cores, has a quick 1 second resource usage update, brilliant background color choices, and a lot more.
2) Magic Folder
If you have a dozen files bumming around and cluttering your desktop, without an appropriate folder where they can be stored, Magic Folder is just what the doctor ordered for you. Just drag the files to the magic folder and they are automatically sorted according to their file extensions (for example .doc, .jpg, and .gif files) and stored in their designated folders.
3) Ultimate Explorer
This is the ultimate Windows 7 gadget which allows you to search upto 50 different websites from your desktop. You can search all popular websites including Amazon, Wikipedia, Google, YouTube, and others without even having to go to these sites! Check into news sites with the “snap” search, which allows quick glances into news headlines and related search. Don’t miss out on the events features, the flyout help, and calendar sections either.
