    Is there any other way to close the Siri results window apart from clicking on the X?

    Is there an option just to click anywhere on the desktop for instance to remove it?

    On the iPhone, you can exit the Siri window and return to the home screen with:
    "(Hey Siri)" :
    • “Goodbye”
    • “Bye-bye”
    • “So long”
    • “Adios”
    • “See you later”
    • “See you”

    I have to invoke another command to remove the window? Can't just click somewhere on my screen?

    No, because it's not a modal window. You can do other things why you talk to Siri.

    Here is my video explaining mostly how to set up Hey Siri voice activation.



    However at the end of it I open Siri by saying Hey Siri, and then close it by saying goodbye.

    Once it is set up it is pretty easy to use, both to start Siri, and to close it via voice commands. No button pressing at all is needed.

    I want it to close after pressing a keyboard key. Asking her to close the window is just too much hassle every time.
