This may be the most stupid question I ever asked, but I am a fairly new user to apple Macs

and so how the heck am I supposed to close this window without the x button. I mean seriously why apple makes our life so miserable, this is not the first time something stupid like this happen, and really don't get me started!! All the wifi captive crap, windows hiding behind the taskbar and me going around myself to reach them!

But seriously now let's focus, I did something on the keyboard by accident while typing and this window popped up, and won't close. I even tried the keyboard shortcut to close it nothing is working!! This time though I can't find someone dumb like me asking the same question online

you’ve got to think really hard that you want it to close and then punch the screen to assert your dominance

Just remember really hard what key combination you pressed by accident and press it again. Simple. 🤔

[@14585,Mordi] you are enjoying this aren’t you 😡
Problem is that i was hitting the wrong buttons while annoyed because i am also not used to the sequence of letters on this keyboard 🤦‍♀️😠

Problem is you came to a gibbon for computer advice. 👺 Did you fix it?

Are you venting or looking for an answer?

You might do a restart and the screen should go back to normal.
Save your work and try restarting?🤷‍♂️ I haven't used apple in years, sorry.

[@1137758,UnderLockDown] this was the issue, i couldn’t reach the word doc unless this window is closed first

I pressed escape also by accident and it all went away and life is good again 🤷‍♀️
Mordi · 26-30, M
That's pretty much the first key to press when you want to escape. 🤔

[@14585,Mordi] last time i checked escape doesn’t close windows 🤷‍♀️

[@4367,MissGaga] It works as a cancel button. Like for popup windows with a yes/no choice. 🤷‍♂️
Try clicking on format..

I dont think you have to worry about this being the stupidest question ever - I've had a user complain about their keyboard not working, and when I picked it up, warm coffee flooded out of it. She then asked, 'Oh, I did spill some coffee in it, will that make a difference?'
MissGaga · 26-30, F
Omg this is so funny 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 poor IT guys 😂🤦‍♀️[@1725,firefall]

Cmd+W will often close whatever window has focus.

Checking. Nope, doesn't work with that window in Word. The Cancel and OK buttons are getting cut off at the bottom because your viewport is so tiny.
