Apple disabled default Dashboard for the seventh beta of OS X El Capitan. The panel, providing a brief overview of the information that “makemod” uses daily, such as weather forecast, notes, or calculator has not been updated the last four years.
Despite reports of a number of resources, the Dashboard panel is present in OS X El Capitan. To “restore” it, just go to Settings –> Mission Control and the dropdown menu select Dashboard –> As a space. After that you press the Dashboard key on the keyboard to activate the panel.
Dashboard first appeared in OS X Tiger in 2005. Function provides access to a range of functional and entertaining mini-programs called widgets. In OS X contains interactive blocks for popular apps like “Calculator”, “Contacts” and “Calendar”, they provide quick access to contacts and events without having to open the program. The user can add other widgets on the Dashboard panel, and create your own.
To add and remove widgets in Dashboard is very simple. Press the button in the lower left corner of the screen. Will open a special browser which displays all the widgets that are installed on the computer. To remove a widget from the Dashboard, click the Remove button (–) in the lower left corner of the screen and then click “Close” (X) unnecessary widget.
