    a. I would like to use the Clock App I had on my old pc called Presto's Clock.
    Not sure if it would work under OS, but want to try.

    Download it, and it said Firefox won;t allow it's opening as it's frm
    an unidentified developer, and my security...

    "Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the App Store and identified

    Firefox downloaded this file on February 7, 2018 from"

    I'm convinced it's one of the best Desktop clocks available.

    Anyone know how to get it to work on an iMac ?

    b. If not, any thoughts on really simple, very small, digital, clocks for the Desktop ?

    Many available apparently, but way too big. Want something about the size of an icon's width,
    and even of less height.

    c. And all those Widgets that were downloadable on my old W7 pc.:
    I think it was a package of 8, but not sure.

    Anything similar for the Mac ? Where ? How to install ?

    Unless I am missing something, Win7Gadgets are Windows only, not Mac. But, the Gatekeep settings control installing apps from outside the Mac App Store (MAS). To disable or override, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Allow Apps Downloaded From...

    Mac doesn't generally support "Live" desktop widgets. However, there are a few tools, such as Geek Tools and Ubersicht that can allow you to put Calendars, Clocks, other useful info on the desktop. But, these require some scripting\programming. You can often find pre-packaged scripts to do the basics and tweak things to your style, but it is not as easy as just install and use.

    The easiest thing I've found is Qdesktop. You can use a web page as your desktop picture including a page you build yourself. So…you can create an local HTML page with web widgets on it.
