Microsoft introduced gadgets with Windows 7. These small modules have been successful in bringing different data to the desktop. They made it possible, for example, to have weather forecasts, a follow-up of the processor occupancy rate or a slide show of the images stored on the hard drive.
The giant, however, decided to take a step back for security reasons. According to a new report this feature has not been discontinued. It was only put aside. Clearly Redmond would never have given up on the idea of returning these widgets to the desktop. So it is not impossible that this will happen in the near future. For some, this could be done on the occasion of the release of Windows 10 21H2 scheduled for the fall.
At least that’s what advances
. According to him a new feature for Windows 10 is in development. It is called “Windows Widgets”. For the moment this file is not very clear. It is reported that this advanced ‘eis something [qui] slides from the left side of the screen when swiping “. This description is interesting because it recalls something already seen in Windows (charms bar in Windows 8).

New in Windows 10 21H2?
This charms bar (sidebar that appears when hovering over the right edge of the screen) was originally designed for touch devices. However, it has found use with more traditional PCs. At the moment we do not know if Microsoft wants to return with this approach. However, it is not excluded that widgets will eventually reappear.
This novelty could land during the deployment of the second update of 2021 features of Windows 10. Named 21H1 or Sun Valley, it promises to be a major update. According to the big boss of Microsoft, we can expect the most important redesign of Windows 10 since its launch in July 2015.
