    hey Gary, I miss the dashboard widgets we used to have in Sierra, lots of useful stuff in there and a clock as well. Any idea why they got rid of them? thx

    nick: I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think many people used the old Dashboard Widgets, and they wanted to replace them with the current method. There is a clock widget in the Notifications Center if you like that.

    Gary: in Mac OS is the Notification Center on the upper right-hand corner?

    nick: Right. In Catalina when you click that, you get Notifications or Today. Today shows widgets. At the bottom you can go to Edit and add a Clock widget. In Big Sur it is combined into one view and the Clock widget is better.

    Hi Gary, do you happen to know a terminal script/tutorial to pin the international clock on desktop for Big Sur? I use it all the time and it is really annoying to have to scroll the widgets down every time.

    Gus: Widgets work in that space only. You can’t have it display elsewhere. I’d look for an app that displays a clock on your desktop or in the menu bar instead.
