The public beta of macOS Sonoma is out now, and if you want to be one of the first users, you can go ahead and download it.
There’s a whole bunch of new features built into this version, some of which are, in fact, carried over from iOS and will make your Mac look like a hell of an iPhone while you use it. Widgets are one of them. Now you can place various interactive widgets right on your desktop, including podcasts, weather, and calendar, in a very simple way.
How to add Widgets on the Desktop macOS Sonoma
- Right click anywhere on the desktop.
- Select Edit Widgets in the menu that appears.
- A window with a list of many applications will appear at the bottom of the screen. Select the desired app and a variety of fields (representing different types of widgets) will appear to the right of it. It’s hard to explain, so I’ll just show you what it looks like.
- Okay, now you can decide which of these little blocks/widgets you would like to have. Once you’ve made your selection, click and drag the selected widget anywhere on your desktop. They will stay there as soon as you release them.
That’s it – now you have widgets on your desktop. I told you it was easy!
That’s it! You have successfully placed a widget on your desktop in macOS Monterey. You can add multiple widgets to your desktop and arrange them in any way you prefer. Enjoy the convenience and functionality of having widgets at your fingertips!
