Widget is a fancy word for tools or content that you can add, arrange, and remove from the sidebar or footer of your website.

Widgets make it easy to customize the content of your sidebar or footer.

To use any widget just drag it to the sidebar where you wish it to appear.

Once you dropped the widget to widget areas, WordPress automatically updates the Theme and it will appear in its area.
