10.4: Quickly close an open dashboard widget
Authored by: sjk on Oct 24, '05 08:18:40PM

Hold down the option key and keeping moving the mouse pointer around near the upper-left corner of a widget until the circle-X close button appears in that corner just outside the widget's window. It'll be easier finding that "hot zone" to activate the close button after you discover it the first time. :-)

This works great for Widgets that are in the Finder also. (If you have Developer's Mode turned on)

10.4: Quickly close an open dashboard widget

In 10.4.3 at least, the "hot zone" seems to be the entire widget, although if your cursor is on a widget when you press Option, you'll have to move the mouse before the close button appears.
