Hello everyone.
I'm using an ESP8266 and a DS18B20 Digital Temperature Sensor for sending data to ThingSpeak.
In my Android tablet I’m using “IoT ThingSpeak Monitor Widget” to view the values of the Temperature Sensor.
Everything is working fine.
Now I’m trying to create a widget for Windows 10 to monitor the temperature in my desktop.
I’ve tried some Windows desktop widgets (Rainmeter) but I didn’t find any solution.
I was wondering if there is a possibility to view the values of the Temperature Sensor at my Windows 10 Desktop from a widget.
Thanks.

You can add a numeric display or field value gauge to your channel and then just view it in a browser. See the doc here: https://www.mathworks.com/help/thingspeak/channel_display_widgets.html

Just use the "Add Widgets" button form your channel view.

I guess I was not clear.
I know how to create a numeric display and gauge display too.
At my first post I added 2 links, one for numeric and one for gauge display of my sensor.

I’m trying to create something like Windows 7 Gadgets.
A widget to pin at my Desktop.
A tab at my desktop to show the temperature without opening a browser.

Thanks anyway.

Some time ago i started create widget on windows 10, and this is results of my work. At this moment, value is displayed only in numeric format. I encourage to test my widget and express opinion.
