I don't know why and how but after restart my Mac air mid 2012 I can't find default weather widget : / I am using Accuweather widget but I prefer default widget. I also tried to follow this instruction but it not work because I can't find those plist file! (I used Iterm 2 to find it but it's not exist in my Mac)


1. Deleted com.apple.dashboard.plist from ~/Library/Preferences

2. Deleted com.apple.dashboard.client.plist from ~/Library/Preferences

3. Reboot

4. Open /Library/Widgets in Finder

5. Double-clicked Dictionary

6. Switched to Dashboard

7. Clicked + and all default Widgets were displayed

So, can anyone help me to find default weather widget? Please help me and sorry for my English.

    You can try this. Or look in your back up (assuming you have been backing up your system) under /Library/Widgets and copy that folder back to your hard drive.


    Or ask a friend with ML to look in their /Library/Widgets folder and copy the Weather one for you.

    This widget cannot show any thing :/ It cannot found any city. I can't find weather widget in /Library/Widgets

    Can you share me your default widget?

    You know, you can reinstall ML on top of itself and get the widget back. Restart your system and press/hold Command+R then select Reinstall OS X from the menu. The reinstall of ML will not touch your apps or data.


    But do a back up first.
