This isn't the type of plugin that you need to keep active but it is very useful to keep additional Elementor plugins, widgets etc in check to improve performance and reduce clutter. Highly recommend. Thanks for making it

Great way to cleanup unused Elementor add-on plugins. Also great to investigate if a add-on plugin is used as much as thought. Cleaned and speed up a site that had 5 installed and only used 1 or 2 widgets from each.. This plugin saves so much time!

This plugin is now my go to solution for reducing plugin bloat with Elementor widgets. You can easily see which widgets are actively used and remove the ones which are not or even swap widgets and remove entire plugins if not used. Great support from the plugin author as well

It's not often that I come across a tool that makes cleaning up after yourself a dream. Just added the use of this tool to my Go Live procedure to make sure I don't have any widgets in use that I don't need to minimize code and reducing overall bloat. Well done guys!

Perfect for optimizing site loading time by disabling unused Elementor widgets. It would be even more perfect if there was an automatic function to disable them but the plugin is already a great help as it is now. Many thanks to the developers.
