10.4: Detach widgets from the Dashboard
Authored by: adams4 on May 02, '05 03:27:13PM

I was able to drag a widget into "plain view" without changing anything using defaults.

  1. Start by pressing F12 or whatever your definded key is.
  2. Click on the Dashboard's shelf button (is there a name for that?).
  3. Drag out a new widget and while still holding the mouse button down, press F12 again.

That's it. To move a widget back into the Dashboard layer, click and hold the mouse on the one you want to get rid of, press F12, and release the mouse button.

10.4: Detach widgets from the Dashboard

This will allow you to put only a single widget on the desktop and only until you press F12 again. Try it.
