    What does that mean?  What OS are you running?

    F4 key

    swipe right

     

    If you have exhausted the normal approach, then possible corrupt plist 

     

    Try deleting  the  com.apple.dashboard.plist

     

    In Finder drop down menu >Go>Go to Folder>

     

    copy and paste:

     

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist
    

     

    Relaunch Dashboard by a restart,  or in terminal.app enter:

     

    killall Dock
    

     

    This will rebuild the dashboard plist you deleted

    leroydouglas, greetings:  Just as a point of information, the dashboard function can vary depending upon model as well as the four finger swipe.  The OP has failed to identify which one he has.

     

    I assume you meant to type in F3 key.

     

    Ciao.
