Gadgets Additions 3.1.1
System, Web, Markets and BOINC monitoring inspired by the (and Orbmu2k) Windows Sidebar Gadgets.

Created as addition to SilverAzide's suite to complete the transition of the collection from Windows Sidebar Gadgets to Rainmeter.
Since Orbmu2k's Windows Sidebar Gadgets completed the AddGadgets collection in this past era, some of them were also reinvented in this suite.

Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10.
Rainmeter must be installed to use this suite!
The download-button for this suite is in the top right corner.

Each skin has a settings skin and can be scaled individually for any resolution!

You can choose between 6 different styles through the launcher skin to set the style globally:
  • Default
    • Gradient background
  • Blurred Edges

    • Black background without edges
  • Solid Accent
    • Uses the defined windows accent color

    • No gap between skins, you'll get a completely blurred surface!
