Removing unwanted widgets

Here is the third mac tip: removing unwanted widgets. To tell you the truth, I was very excited about Widgets when they were introduced in Mac OS Tiger, but now after what, two years, my widget selection is getting cluttered up. Sure, I could simply disable them in the widgets settings but why keep something useless on my computer (especially if it's a portable). I have lots of widgets that are even outdated, like countdown to certain events. So, how to do it:

The widget is either located in :

1. Macintosh HD, Library, Widgets
or in 2. "you account", Library, Widgets

and you can simply drop the file in the trash and you're done!

See you tomorrow for tip #4 and an update on what we'll do for the Macworld San Francisco Keynote!

Or you could simple hit the plus (+) button on the bottom left corner of the Dashboard and click on 'Manage Widgets...'. This launches the following widget:

Simply click on the red minus (-) signs next to the widgets you want removed. :)

No, that simply removes the widget from dashboard. This tip refers to freeing up wasted disk space and such.

You're right konstantino and it does make a difference when you end up with lots of widgets. Also it's the only way widgets that came with OS X can be deleted.
