Create customizable Windows 11 widgets for your desktop with this app

Windows 11 has a built-in Widgets Panel that can show you different types of information. While the panel lets people view a wide range of widgets, its contents are tucked away. You have to swipe in from the left to make the widgets panel appear on Windows 11. A new app called BeWidgets takes a different approach to widgets on Windows. It allows you to add customizable widgets directly to the desktop.

The app currently has options for time, date, photos, finances, and weather widgets. It can also be used to create a customizable widget for an app shortcut.

The concept of widgets on the Windows desktop isn’t new. Apps like Win10 have been around for years. BeWidgets attempts to stand out from competitors with a design built for Windows 11. Its font, layout, and other elements fit in well with Microsoft’s new operating system.

Each widget available in the app is customizable. For example, you can change the date or time formats in their respective widgets. You can also choose the background color, corner radius, and other aspects of each widget.

After you’ve created your widgets and set them up in a way that you like, you can save your layout within the app.
