Try This To Make Notification Center Widgets More Useful
I believe many people don't make use of Notification Center Widgets and the reason could be because they show too much information. Instead, try forcing it to show you some specific information that you need throughout your day.
So much useful information here, Gary, but how do we get the extra widgets that used to be around in the MacOS dashboard, e.g. unit conversion calculator (miles to kilometres, Celsius to Fahrenheit, etc)? Thanks.
Jane: Use Spotlight for that. https://macmost.com/20-things-you-can-do-with-spotlight-besides-searching-for-files.html
Oh wow, just watched your Spotlight video, as recommended - I didn't realise Spotlight could do all that. However, those things aren't working for me - the tab key doesn't expand results, the maths calculations don't produce a result, etc. I have just upgrade to Ventura on a 2021 MacBook Pro. Thanks.
Jane: I was mainly pointing out the conversions. That video is pre-Ventura and Spotlight changed a bit since then. The math calculations should work though. Try those again. Also, check in your System Settings, Spotlight to make sure you have that enabled.
Thanks Gary - all working now apart from the tab key, but I can live with that :)
This was great! Thanks Gary
