Windows 7: Keyboard Shortcut to Show/Hide Gadgets


Gadgets are a nice addition to Windows 7. I find them most useful for information that I need to check once in a while. However, there seems to be no keyboard shortcut to display them and to hide them after I have looked at them. I typically need this to check the time (on the Clock gadget) or check the temperature (on the Weather gadget). The Gadgets display should be gone once I have checked them.


I wrote a small AutoHotKey script to show or hide Gadgets on pressing the Win+G keyboard shortcut. Get the script here.

Tried with: AutoHotKey
