    Need a little help here managing the widgets. I know how to download widgets. But what do I do with them after download? Which part of the Macintosh HD do I store it? How do I make it part of the list that appears when I click on the (+) that appears when I activate the widgets program?

    AFAIK, you click on it and it installs itself. You can find it in your user library in the widgets folder. The apple widgets are in the "main" library.

    Widgets are store in a folder named widgets in the library under the Macintish HD. Usually it automatically stores it in the right place and asks you if you want to keep them or trash them. This is under OS Tiger.

    Here's the apple doc on installing and uninstalling widgets and where widgets are stored.
