dashboard widgets..

by karthij / June 18, 2005 5:49 AM PDT

I have downloaded dome widgets for my dashboard. I dont need them now. Hence i have removed them from the dashboard...meaning they do not appear when i press F12. However when i click "more widgets" i can still see those widgets in the 'more widgets strip" at the bottom of the screen.

Does anyone know how to completely remove the widgets from the 'more widgets strip'?

Go to User - Library - Widgets

Drag your unwanted widget into the trash.

You may find it one more time in your widget bar but it will disappear if you click on it.
