    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:




    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.
