Override the More Gadgets link

This policy setting allows you to override the More Gadgets link. The Gadget Gallery contains a link for users to download more gadgets from a website. Microsoft hosts a default website where many gadget authors can post their gadgets. This link can be redirected to a website where alternate gadgets are available.

If you enable this setting, the Gadget Gallery will direct users to the alternate web site.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, the Gadget Gallery will direct users to the default web site.

The default is for Windows to direct users to the default web site.
