Gadget (font size) and autostart


Active Member

1. Can you do font size settings for the HWiNFO64.gadget?

2. If the autostart option doesn't work then for which purpose make a string in the startup records in the Windows registry?

3. Can you do automatically records in the task scheduler for the autostart options?
1. There are no such plans in the near future. Check the HWiNFOMonitor gadget, which offers much more options and is fully configurable.
2. The Autostart option as is currently works for Windows XP and earlier versions. On Vista/7 it doesn't work properly in certain cases (probabaly related to UAC).
3. This feature is in the to-do list.
Thank you.

The HWiNFOMonitor gadget doesn't work on my PC. I have attach a screen shot. HWiNFOMonitor has on the right.

OS - Windows 7 SP1, 64 bit, Text size (DPI) 125%.

If there's a problem with the HWiNFOMonitor gadget, then please sumbit the problem here:

For a bit more advanced users it's easy to change the font size manually in the HWiNFO64.gadget. You need to unpack the file (using expand command or WinRAR for example). Then change font size definition in the "HWiNFO.html" file, pack all files again and reinstall the gadget.
