I never use Opera so I am having it start at Windows startup, it always comes up in the same location and same size, it brings up my PWS on WUnderground, I use AdBlocker and Stylish to remove some of the bumph at the top (it's supposed to remove the URL line but that doesn't seem to work) and it doesn't look too bad.
If I gave it more thought, I could probably negate some more div's using Stylish and reduce text size as well, to have it take up even less space.
Having said that... I much prefer the gadget. I just wish that it was formally supported.

Hi.
"Download the gadget to your desktop from the Forum Thread shown below.
You will end up having a cumulusih.zip file on your desktop
- with an icon looking like a stack of books:
 Rename the file to: cumulusih.gadget
If renamed correctly, the icon will have changed to:"
I did this and the icon did not change.
i AM RUNNING WINDOWS 10, so what am i doing wrong?

See previous post from Steve:
steve wrote:If it still shows as a zip file, then it probably still is a zip file, and you probably have file extensions hidden (so the file is now called cumulusih.gadget.zip). If you turn on display of known file extensions, renaming files will be much easier.
