WidgetsÂ are small windows that display dynamic info on your Windows desktop. They appear on the widgets board, where you can add, remove, arrange, resize, and customize them to reflect your interests and the way you work. Widgets help you stay on top of whatâ€™s important to you by bringing together personalized content from your favorite apps and services so you can have the latest info at a glance throughout your day. So say goodbye to constantly switching between apps and devices and websitesâ€”now you can stay connected to the things you care about without losing focus on your most important tasks.
Your widgets board consists of two sections: yourÂ widgetsÂ and yourÂ news feed. Your widgets are all located at the top of the widgets board. The news feed can be found below your widgets. The following sections describe how to use the widgets board.
To use the widgets board, you need to beÂ signed inÂ to yourÂ Microsoft account, yourÂ work account, or yourÂ school account.
Some widgets may have aÂ Customize widgetÂ option available allowing you to customize and change settings for the widget to reflect your interests and show the info you want.
