    You need to search.... (i did to find the same answer 2 weeks ago)

    Thanks Kyle. You're a good guy. Unlike the first guy who took the time to post but did not give an answer :rolleyes:

    Some members are not true regulars, and may not know how MR works.

    Thanks again.

    What Kyle says is correct but you have to go into the terminal first. Open up terminal (/applications/utilities) and type in the following:

    defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES

    Then press Return.

    After that it'll work peachy.

    To move a widget back into Dashboard do the opposite (click on the widget, press F12 to activate Dashboard and then release). To disable this mode type the same command as above into the terminal but replace 'YES' with 'NO'
    :)

    yeah...the post is a sticky, and hard to miss. Most regulars would have read the post anyways, and most regulars would know how to find an answer before asking.
