I need to enable and disable a widget from time to time in admin. I don't see a disable/enable switch please advise how it can be done.

Yes,Magento does not have feature for disabled/enabled for Widget module.

So, the only solution is that delete those widgets which you have created if want to disable those widget.

I had the same requirement. I achieved it by deleting the layout updates selections.

enter image description here

If the widget is not being instructed to show up anywhere then, even though you have it in Admin Panel, it wont show up in your site.

  • I think that it is better deleting widget for performance issues. Feb 23, 2023 at 8:43
