How do I set or change widget properties?

You can set or change default widget properties. For example, properties available for a local weather widget could include a ZIP code.

About this task

Each widget will have unique properties; some may have no properties at all.

Depending on how the widget was created, you may not have edit rights to its properties.


  1. Right-click a widget and select Properties.
  2. Optional: Check Add as a panel on startup if the widget should be added to the client sidebar panel.

    If you enable this option, the widget will open in a separate sidebar panel. If you later click Close on this widget's sidebar panel, you will negate this property value and the widget sidebar panel will be removed.

  3. Make any property changes in the resultant dialog and click OK.
