    Hi,

    Can anyone help me? I don't usually use my Dashboard and recently I've downloaded an alarm clock widget but now I can't seem to access my Dashboard.

    Tried putting it to Dock and opening it, doesn't work.
    Tried the F4 button, doesn't work either.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you looked inside your Applications folder or used Spotlight (CMD+SPACEBAR) to search for it?
    What happens if you double click on the downloaded widget?

    Btw, what Mac OS X version do you have?
    Identify your Mac and Mac OS X version

    I've looked inside my Applications folder and used Spotlight to search for it. When I do click on it, nothing happens.

    Same as with the downloaded widget, when I click on it nothing happens.

    I have the Version 10.6.4, MacbookPro7,1.

    The F12 button is a volume button for me.

    So Dashboard is inside the Applications folder?
    What about running the Software Update to update your system to 10.6.6?

    Thanks for the updated info. Didn't know you were using a MBP.
