Notes about the GG file extension:

Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The GG file type is primarily associated with 'Google Desktop' by Google. To develop and distribute a script-based Sidebar gadget, you: (1) Write a gadget.gmanifest file in XML that contains meta-information about the gadget. (2) Write a main.xml file, which defines the main view of your gadget. A view consists of the UI and objects that completely make up one visible pane of your gadget. (3) If needed, write an options.xml file, which defines your gadget's options view. (4) Write JavaScript or VBScript code to implement your gadget's functionality. (5) Zip together gadget.gmanifest, main.xml, options.xml (if you have one), and any separate JavaScript or VBScript files. Rename the zipped file so it has a .gg suffix (for Google Gadget). Your zipped file can have any name, but must have the .gg suffix. When a user installs a .gg-file-based gadget, their Google Desktop installation handles unzipping, installing, and registering it, using information from the gadget.gmanifest file.
