Hello friend,

Right click and click on “Gadgets”. Under there you will find “Calendar” on top of the first. If you are looking for that gadget which is used for remembering daily schedule then press window key go to “All Programs” click on “Accessories” and then click on “Sticky Notes”. In sticky notes write your schedule in it and save it. A new gadget will be shown after you save it.
