How do I get the Widget Icon back on the Dock?

Asked by gailcalled (54575points) March 17th, 2008

Mac 10.4.11 – I can easily retrieve the Widget window from Spotlight but have lost the Dock icon. “Help” is not very helpful. Any ideas?

you need to open up your “applications” folder, locate the “dashboard” allocation and drag the icon into your dock

Thank you. It worked on first try. Any tricks for remembering this? I have been roaming around and learning lots of shortcuts, but wasn’t able to find your solution. G

the great thing about mac is most of it is based off of a “drag and drop” system. So basicaly if your in doubt as to what to do, try dragging junk around the screen. It will ether do nothing or do something. A good place to actualy go for a vast amount of he common, non-programming, related shortcuts is the mac support fourms. If you want more detailed short cuts google “mac key-board shortcuts” that should bring you to a web site detailing nearly everything you can do in mac. I know it was one of the first five links, two months ago. I’ll look into my bpoatks for the exact link when I get home soonish.
