Provides a set of gadgets in a toolbar on the right side of the screen. Tool bar widgets include: clock, system information, weather, network interface information, network monitor, postit note, and power control. Requires .NET 4.5. You can hide, show, and configure the tool bar and widgets using the icons on each widget and the tray icon in the taskbar. [Still a work in progress. Please use and provide feedback.] Works on Windows 7 and Windows 8.
