because someone asked how to add gadgets, i thought about adding this feature to winreducer. i wrote how to do it, and it isnt complicated:

hey i tested it.

you need only to extract your gadget to

@install.wim    \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets

the "Windows Sidebar\Gadgets" folder didnt exist so i created them.

at the Gadgets folder you need only to create a new folder with the name of the gadget i.e. "NewClock"
and extract the content of your "newclock.gadget" to this folder


-create a folder with the name of the new gadget you want to add i.e.
@install.wim    \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\NewClock

- extract the content from newclock.gadget (with i.e. 7zip) to "....\NewClock\"

for me i get now this 4 files at "NewClock\"


- thats it. when i install this system and open the gadgets from the desktop right click menu i see my NewClock and i can put it to the desktop
