    probably stupid question, but here it goes.

    How do I backup widgets? Not the standart ones that came with OS but those which were downloaded. I alway did automatic install of them and don't know where to look for those files.

    I believe the Widgets folder is under "Username (home folder) > Library > Widgets" - I'm not at home now or else I'd double-check for you. If your real concerned about your widgets you can control-click on the Widgets folder to make an archive of them for backup and then save them to a disk or another computer for safe keeping. :)

    LimeiBook86, you're correct. Installed Widgets are stored at ~/Library/Widgets.
