My stickies widget appear, but there is no 'close' box or any obvious way to delete them after I make a new one. What's going on?

pressing ALT over them had no effect. They just sit there unless I delete the whole stickies widget.

Note that you also have to move the mouse. If you just press Alt but aren't using the mouse, nothing happens, but if you keep Alt pressed and move the mouse pointer, the X-in-a-circle should appear. If it still doesn't, press the (+) in the lower left screen corner, and you will get that X on every widget on your screen.

True, the + enables me to delete the stickies, but the ALT moving cursor still doesn't do anything......Is my widget corrupted?

Holding down the OPTION key makes the X appear.
Thank you all.

The option key IS the alt key.[/b]

Thank you. I am a Mac person.
My new wireless keyboard has the ALT letters on my "command" key (the clover)
The Option key just says Option.

Such is life.
Thanks for your help.
