Widgets, gadgets are little applications that are running on the desktop. Prominent examples are the gadgets that can be added to the Windows Vista sidebar or Yahoo Widgets. I never found a reason to use any of those little applications on my system but apparently some users really like that feature.
There is however a problem with the position of Yahoo Widgets when the screen resolution changes. This can be initiated by the user or by another application like a game that changes it automatically. The position of the Widgets changes with the new screen resolution and it can be a dull task to move them to their previous position after changing the screen resolution to its original value.
The Widget Position Restorer can be useful to users who use the Yahoo Widget engine and see frequent screen resolution changes on their system. The position can be saved and restored at any time using the software. The software is compatible to Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows NT 3.51 & 4.0.
