    Can't swipe to gadjets screen
    I just tried to swipe (with 1, 2, 3, and 4 fingers, just to be sure) to the screen with translator, clock, etc., but nothing works. NEVER MIND. Now that I've been reminded that the screen is called Dashboard, I found out how to enable it. (System Preferences > Mission Control > Dashboard

    Hi Johnny - let's provide some more information because I'm sure others upgrading to El Capitan may also be befuddled by the absence of Dashboard using the 3-finger sweep to the right - Apple disabled this feature as a default setting on release of its newest OS X - but as you state, go to System Preferences, and then as shown in my screen capture below, set 'Dashboard' to 'As Space' (blue arrow) - more detailed discussion HERE for those interested.
