If you recently updated to Mac OS X El Capitan you may have noticed that the dashboard feature is no longer enabled by default. If you were like me & actually used the dashboard feature then you’ll want to be re-enabling it right away.

Here’s how:

1- Open System Preferences

2-Open “Mission Control”

3-Enable Dashboard by choosing either Overlay or Space

The two options provide you a choice to have Dashboard open as an overlay on top of whatever you have ongoing or slide over to a separate space. This is entirely up to you & how you prefer to view your dashboard. While Dashboard has been around in OS X for quite some time it hasn’t received many updates. Personally I love using it for a quick glance at useful widgets like world clocks, calculator, and weather.

Stay tuned for more El Capitan coverage.
