Find a Lost Gadget


I seem to have accidentally removed the “feed headlines” gadget from the Windows Vista gadget list.    How can I get it back?


Just follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the sidebar and then click Add Gadgets.
  2. Double-click Feed Headlines. Windows Vista adds your feed headlines gadget back into the sidebar.
  3. Close the gadgets window.
