10.4: Opening widgets from the keyboard, even with Dashboard open
Authored by: lstryder on Jun 01, '05 12:08:47PM
If you are looking for a way to open widgets via the keyboard, Spotlight can help. Just enter part of the name of the widget in the Spotlight menu followed by a space and the letter 'w'. Upon selecting the desired widget, Dashboard should open and land the it in the centre of the screen. Each time it does this it opens a new copy of the widget so, if you want to keep your Dashboard clear of clutter, it's only really useful if you know what is already open, meaning you need Dashboard open in the first place.

Thankfully, Spotlight is usable while the Dashboard is activated, albeit hidden by any widgets that happen to be in the top right corner of your screen – a problem for anyone that really needs to see what they are typing, I suppose.
