Note that users who aren’t signed in with their Microsoft account cannot access the “Widget board” feature. Although most people still prefer using Windows without widgets, Microsoft believes that widgets are trending and the company has plans to improve the widget board experience.
That is why the widgets board experience is getting significant upgrades and third-party widgets could be game-changing in Microsoft’s long-term vision for the feature.
