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.

This plugin filled the missing gap for many Elementor users when it gets to Elementor speed optimization. Hope authors will ad an automatic option to switch off all unuseful widgets. Maybe to add JS scan option and automatic removal from the pages which are not using it. Would be a great addition. Thank you guys for a good product!
