Widgets are a big part of the Mac notification center (if you’re using macOS 11 Big Sur or later). They’re there, in the bottom half of the menu. Do you want to see a widget without scrolling? Here̵
Unlike widgets on the iPhone, rearranging widgets in Notification Center is very simple: no need to open a special widget editing mode.

Rearranging widgets is actually as easy as dragging and dropping. To open the notification center, click the Time and Date button on the right side of the menu bar (you’ll find it next to the Control Center button.).
In Notification Center, you’ll see your unread notifications at the top (if you have one), and widgets take up the rest of the space. You can scroll down to see all your widgets.
If you want to rearrange widgets, you can do it from here. First, click and drag to get the widget you want to move.
Now drag your cursor to where you want to move the widget.
Then release the cursor. The widget has now been moved to its new location.
And it is that easy to rearrange widgets. You can do this for any widget you want. This also works when you are in widget editing mode. To get there, scroll to the bottom of Notification Center and click the “Edit Widgets” button.
You will now see the three-panel interface for adding, removing, customizing, and yes, rearranging widgets.
Here you can drag new widgets to where you want to place them. You can also pick up and drag an existing widget from the right pane to move it up or down the list.
In addition to the notification center, you will also find a Control Center icon next to it in the menu bar. Not sure what it does? Here’s how to use the Control Center on Mac.
