By default is if you access the Widgets module all the layers are switch on, thus you will be able to see all the widgets of all the layers. On the other hand, this is not very user-friendly especially if you have a lot of layers.

Is it possible to change it so by default you only have showing the widgets of the layer that you are accessing at the moment? For example, if I am in the 'Default' layer I would only see the widgets in that layer only.

I know there is the functionality to switch them off from the right-hand side, but to honest it is not that practical to expect a user of the CMS to continuously switch them off and on.

I don't think that "off" should be the default behavior, because most sites have a small number of widgets. It would cause massive confusion. Having a button on the right-hand side that is a shortcut to turn off all layers except the current one however sounds like a good idea. If you want to implement it, that's a contribution that we would probably take.
