[Resolved] Gadget...again!
« on: February 25, 2011, 01:57:31 AM »
Exactly how do you get the gadget to work? I can't even get it to show anywhere. I keep reading about it but I don't know how to activate it or use it. Where is it hiding? If nothing else give me a link. I can't even find a link concerning...who, what where, when, why or, how.
