Detached Widgets

I opened the Terminal and typed:

defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES

Pressed Return. Then, I loggedout and loggged back in again. Debugging mode was activated.
To get a widget  onto my desktop, just did the following:
  1. Activate Dashboard by pressing F12 (the key I've assigned to Dashboard).
  2. Begin dragging the widget.
  3. Pressed F12 again, before letting up on the mouse button.
  4. Drop the widget upper left.
