Hi Everyone

After days of scouring the internet, and finding zero forum posts, Q&A's, articles, or anything about this - I'm here in desperation :)

My question is, how can I set my Widget Menu to popup in the center, just like my Start Menu does?

I have my taskbar centralized, and start menu centralized, but when clicking the Widgets shortcut, it pops up on the left :(

Due to the fact I have an ultrawidescreen monitor, this is very inconvenient, and it baffles me as to why there's no setting to centralize the widget menu, when everything else is centralized. This is so strange to me, and apparently there are no solutions available online (not that I can find).

Please

Help XD

Even in the older versions that had the widget icon 'in' the bar, (so middle if you had aligned middle) still opened to the left-hand side, so I don't think it's possible, not in any official way to move it. And I haven't heard of any 3rd Party apps that have even bothered to try (yet at least)

Ok :( thanks for the responses, I'm just really surprised that A) Microsoft have decided to set the start menu in the middle, but the widget bar to the left, by default, with no way to align them and B) Nobody has found a solution to that yet.

So odd & frustrating. I guess I'll just keep my eyes peeled as things develop.
