Meaning of Desktop Widget?

The Qubes ‘Getting Started’ doc tells me that the padlock icon is a Whonix widget. What does it signify? Unlike the photo displayed in this doc, mine has is greyed out (rather than blue) with an X on it. Unlike every other desktop widget, nothing happens when I click on it. Couldn’t find any description in Whonix or Qubes docs. Thanks!
