Here's what I'm talking about:

dashboard widgets

I couldn't find it anymore, I used to set it as a hot corner in System Preferences > Mission Control, I tried to search the keyword "Dashboard" in System Preferences but ended with no luck. Did Apple remove Dashboard on OS Catalina? If not, where can I find it? Thanks a lot!

Edit: Seems like dashboard is removed from OS Catalina (thanks to the comment linking to other similar questions!), Is there any way to put dashboard widgets on desktop like it's shown in this video?


Is there a way to get the Converter Tool somehow? (the widget that can convert currency, length, pressure, weight all in one!) Recommendation of similar Apps is welcomed too!

  • Yes, there are a lot of articles that say that dashboard is not there on Catalina apple.stackexchange.com/… see these questions with different attempts to recover the features.

  • Some of these are now in Notifications, present on extremest right of menu bar. Click on that and you will be able to add/modify what is displayed. Only Stickies is to be found in Launchpad.

  • @Yoan Is there a way to get the Converter Tool somehow? Or something similar, that would allow multiple windows of different kinds of conversions? Unfortunately, Converter is one of the widgets I cannot found in Notifications... I noticed you can manually type what you want to convert in Spotlight, but that gets tedious after a while...

  • @kuku Convert tool is now embedded in Calculator application. It is the normal calculator, not the one available in Notifications. You can use it from there.

Dashboard nor Widgets are available in macOS 10.15 Catalina. Since Widgets are not available I don't think the question of how to place them in the video is possible.
