Mac Help says:
"You cannot remove widgets from the Widget Bar or change their order."
What? I must be missing/misreading something. Is this a joke? How about a widget to remove unwanted widgets!
Can't believe Apple would design a system (and this is an extraordinary one) so straightjacketed.
Someone please straighten me out.
Thanks

Can't change the order, no, but every widget you install is put in:

~/Library/Widgets/

(~ being your home directory.) Removing from this directory does delete the widget entirely. It's a bit of an oversight not to have this functionality included with a better interface.

If nothing else, the option to right-click (ctrl-click) on a widget from the bar to popup a contextual menu with the options "Remove Widget" or "Show Widget in Finder" would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help - can't believe I didn't think of just plunking unwanteds out of the Library!
Several PC folks have been VERY impressed by Dashboard and may be switching.
