I already have a clock and a weather gadget but I cannot find the calendar, how do I do this?

    This should be easy, but it doesn't seem like it. Microsoft's official gadgets page is here: 
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/personalize/gadgets

    It says "Because we want to focus on the exciting possibilities of the newest version of Windows, Microsoft no longer supports uploading new gadgets. But that doesn't mean you can't still get gadgets. The most popular and highest-rated gadgets are still available on this page."

    But most of the gadgets appear gone.

    Gadgets were the future back in Windows Vista, but Microsoft obviously doesn't care anymore.

    Here's a Calendar gadget on a third-party site: http://wlcalendargadget.codeplex.com/

    That should work!
