    Near Glasgow - Scotland
    Have to admit it took me a while to find it after installing it.

    I believe Widgets show up as a Group in Mission Control

    However I went into System Preferences - Mission Control and unticked show Dashboard as a space I then selected F13 as the shortcut key to display Dashboard. At the moment I am using a wired keyboard and just found that was a handy ket to assign. When you go into the Widgets screen there is a Plus and Minus on the right of the screen. You use these to add or delete widgets-

    Hope that all makes some sense.

    I actually found that the Delivery Status Widget didn't actually update my Apple order on time. It does seem to be tracking the UPS shipment Ok, well as far as Germany where it has been stuck since Thursday night.
