How to Turn On the Dashboard in MacOS Mojave

Dashboard comes disabled by default in MacOS Mojave, if you love the convenient underappreciated widgets features on your Mac for getting the quick access to the things like weather reports, unit conversion tools, world clock, calendar, a dictionary, and thesaurus, and more, then there’s good news for you that you can easily enable Dashboard on your MacOS Mojave.

A dashboard in MacOS can be used as a Space or as an Overlay. Dashboard as Space puts it together with other virtual desktops in the Mission Control, while Dashboard as an Overlay places it moving around the current desktop or app.

Steps to turn on Dashboard in MacOS Mojave

To enable the Dashboard in MacOS Mojave, you need to:

  • Go to the System Preferences using Apple Menu.
  • Choose the “Mission Control” option.
  • After that, look for “Dashboard” option and pull down the drop-down menu next to the option, selecting either “Space” or “Overlay” option.
  • Now, access Dashboard as usual (generally F12 key, or using Mission Control).

You can access and dismiss Dashboard through different ways, swiping gestures, including key shortcut (normally F12 or FN + F12), or Mission Control like any other desktop space. Also, a Hot Corner can be helpful, depending on how you have it configured.

While Dashboard is turned off by default in MacOS Mojave for whatsoever reason, it’s for sure still quite easy to turn on. Also, you can turn the Dashboard off again if you don’t need the feature. After all, that’s just about returning to the Mission Control settings and selecting “Off” as the option.

Thank you for reading this post, I hope the information as mentioned above is going to be useful to you. All the best!
