Hello all,

I'm brand new to the world of Mac's, got my first one a couple weeks ago (iMac 24 aluminum, smaller processor etc.) and I simply love it and regret not waking up much earlier!

I have been able to figure out most things so far, however, the dashboard has stumped me. It has great potential -IF- I can determine how to adjust the info it gives me - I cant figure out how to change the settings for Dashboard. Any one care to give me a clue?

Thanks in advance.

To add widgets click the plus in a circle to open a strip with all installed widgets. To change the settings of an opened widget click the i in a circle that is somewhere on that widget's front when you hover over it with the mouse.

there's thousands of widgets for anything and everything available via the apple site, btw.

Also, in Safari, using the scissors icon in the toolbar allows you to turn ANY element of ANY webpage into your own custom Dashboard widget.

Oh, and Welcome to Macintosh.
