    Well, I installed wikity widget on arrival of tiger and quickly deleted all the originaly notes. Well, now I want them back. I deleted the widget and deleted the playlist in the preferences. Yet, when I go to reinstall it, it somehow finds the notes I had on there. How do I get it back to it's total original state?

    Anybody? Basically, where does dashboard hide all of the information it gets? I tried using spotlight, but that didnt work.

    Everything should be in plist files in /Library/Preferences or ~/Library/Preferences

    I have a lot of widget preference files just where admanimal says: ~/Library/Preferences (remember ~/ is your home folder).

    At the bottom of that folder there are lots of widget-com.maker.widgetname.plist files, like: widget-com.apple.widget.dictionary.plist and widget-com.jokkedk.widget.showoff.plist

    Look for it among those... or is that what you called the playlist...? If so, did you empty trash after trashing the plist...?
