I often encounter this question, so I thought I’d write up a quick post on how to delete a gadget in iGoogle.
There are two ways.
Each gadget has a two icons in the top right corner of the title bar. Clicking the “arrow” icon on the left reveals a dropdown menu with ‘Delete this gadget’ as an option among others, which I will explain at some later date.
The second way to delete a gadget is by editing the Tab to which the gadget belongs. This is sometimes the only way to delete a gadget…gadgets with an apostrophe in their title break the dropdown menu mentioned in the first option. Anyhow, each tab has a similar arrow icon that reveals a dropdown menu when clicked. From there, choose ‘Edit this tab’ which will pull up a page where you can delete the gadgets on that tab.
