HI JINS,


THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY AND WOULD LIKE THIS ISSUE SOLVED ASAP.


YES, YOU ARE CORRECT WITH ANSWER THERE ARE 30 GADGETS ON MY IGOOGLE.


NOT HAPPY SO FAR AND NEED TO KNOW CAN THESE BE SAVED WHEN I GOOGLE GOES IN NOVEMBER AND HOW.!!!!!


REGARDS JOHN

Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, you are right. iGoogle will be retired on November 1, 2013. The mobile version was retired on July 31, 2012. But thanks to google,you can export your iGoogle homepage settings (including country, language, theme, layout and gadgets installed) to an XML file.

To export your settings:

  1. Click the Optionsgear theniGoogle settings.
  2. At the bottom of the page, clickExportnext to "Export iGoogle settings to your computer."

Check this Google page to know more. A good alternative for iGoogle, that I like to recommend ins Symbaloo. Click here for more details. Another alternatives I like to recommend are NetVibes and Protopage.

Jins

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
