Hello!

I recently bought a new MacBook and so needed to download the time tracking widget. I can click the option and it goes into my downloads, but then when I click it from there, nothing happens. I tried this weeks ago and am still having the same trouble today.

    Hi Robin,

    Unfortunately Apple has made the Dashboard a less important feature of OS X with newer versions. I don’t believe double-clicking will install widgets any longer. Now you have to follow these instructions:

    Press F12 to open Dashboard.
    Click the Open (+) button in the lower left corner to display the Widget bar.
    Click Manage Widgets.
    Click More Widgets. ...
    Browse the widget Web site to find the widget you want to download and install.
    Click the widget's Download button. ...
    Click Install.

    Thank you so much! I wasn’t able to manage widgets in that way exactly, but did find a Cashboard tracker widget in the Business category on this page: https://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/. And it downloaded.

    I appreciate your help!
