We talked about adding gadgets to the sidebar in Windows Vista and 7 sometime back.
There are a number of gadgets available, some for fun and some for getting things done.
The following guide provides you with information on how to download updates from Microsoft's Update Catalog service without using Internet Explorer.
Microsoft made several changes to updates and how updates are delivered when it released windows 10.
The first step is to subscribe to an RSS feed in Internet Explorer. Click the Subscribe to this feed link in the yellow box. You can change the name of the feed and also specify which folder in which to save the feed.
Move the cursor over the gadget to access the toolbar for it.
Click the wrench icon to access the options for the gadget.
But before that we recommend you get the latest version of IE if you don’t have it. Also you can make a new folder for your feeds (to manage large number of feeds) by clicking on “New Folder” button. That’s how you can subscribe to website’s feed using internet explorer. To do so right click on the sidebar and select “Add gadgets” from the context menu. Select the feed gadget and double click on it to add it to desktop. When you hover your mouse over it, a small wrench icon will appear. Under feeds headline settings, click on the drop down to see all the available feeds.
You can download latest version of internet explorer here. In the next step you need to open your Windows sidebar (if it is not showing up on the desktop). Now select the feed you want to display on the feed widget. You can also select the number of latest stories you want to see inside the gadget. Your feeds are ready to be displayed on the sidebar. In this way you can track your favorite websites or blogs without visiting them.
