    I like the sidebar on Vista but its not enabled on Windows 8 even though there is a Windows Sidebar folder.

    I've just downloaded 8gadgetpack installed it and it works so I'm happier again. The weather gadget is back to normal as they disabled that on Vista but I found a download to cure that.

    Update:

    I did a restart to see it it still showed and it put a black box on every desktop icon. I uninstalled 8gadgetpack and restarted and the black boxes were still there. I did a System Restore and that removed the black boxes.

    I downloaded A Guy's thoosje-windows-sidebar-8_installer and that worked ok but there aren't as many gadgets to add.
