Editors' Review


Window Gadgets Calculator allows users to add an attractive customizable calculator to their desktop. Although the program is, at heart, just a calculator, users will appreciate having the ability to easily change the look of the interface.

The program's interface is like that of any basic calculator; no scientific functions or graphing capabilities to be found here. The calculator's rounded corners give it a sleek feel that integrates well with later versions of Windows. Beyond performing arithmetic, the program's only feature is the ability to change its skin. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy this was to do. We expected to have to go to a Web site, browse through skins, and then download the ones that we liked. Window Gadgets Calculator has a much more elegant solution; users simply click a button on the interface and are taken to a display of different skins. The program comes with four of them, which displayed in an upper pane; below that is a lower pane with other skins available for download. Downloading these skins is as simple as dragging and dropping them to the upper pane. There's a fairly wide variety of skins available, including various colors, flower patterns, camouflage, and the Union Jack. The program has no Help file, but it doesn't really need one; its basic features make it quite intuitive.

Window Gadgets Calculator is free. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users looking for a basic, skinnable calculator.

"Much too big to be a gadget"

June 01, 2012  |  By pspreng

 |  Version: Window Gadgets Calculator


Nothing good to say.


Does not fit in with the other gadgets because of its huge size. This is a deal-breaker for me. Did not even use it.

"Simple, easy - just what I was looking for."

July 05, 2010  |  By cnetcookie

 |  Version: Window Gadgets Calculator


Basic on-line calculator to use with numbers keypad. At work I have one called Metacalc but I did not like the version of that I found on the web.


Very annoying pop-up that appears at bottom right of screen asking if you want to visit the site to see more software.


Simple, easy to use, does what it is supposed to.

"Worse than the Microsoft calculator"

December 28, 2009  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Window Gadgets Calculator


Not a lot - it is a simple and basic calculator, if that's all you want, & it looks good.


Unable to enter numbers using the keyboard, which you can do with the Microsoft calculator, you can only do calculations by hitting the calculator's keys, .


Another Con: An annoying popup keeps appearing in the lower right corner of the screen asking if you want to visit the webpage to see more software. It wasn't long before I uninstalled it.
