Powergadgets not showing on desktop, Hidden


Recommended Posts

I have 3 gadgets that we created using powergadgets creator.

1 will work, showing a result window on the desktop but the oher 2 will not show on the desktop.

When I look in task manager it shows as running 3 gadgets .

I feel this has something to do with the size setting, right click , Icon.

Cant see it anywhere. I am running windows 8

is there a way to reset these?

PowerGadgets saves gadgets user settings (position, chart attributes, etc.) in the following directory

<UserFolder>\AppData\Roaming\Software FX, Inc\PowerGadgets\VersionNumber\Personalization 

Please note that the AppData folder is hidden by default. Since Vista this folder is located at C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData, in XP it was located at C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data.

Where VersionNumber might be 1.0 or 2.0 

Cleanup this folder to check if the missing gadgets are caused by corrupt settings. You can also turn off personalization on a per-gadget basis in the PowerGadgets Creator.
