After asking Siri a question on macOS Sierra -- her response window just stays pinned in the upper right corner.

Is there a keyboard shortcut or another siri command to hide that window without having to click the small "x" button? Maybe a way to make it automatically close after some time has passed?


You may close the Siri window at any time by pressing the ESC key. However, I am unaware of a way to automatically close Siri after some time has passed.


Another option (besides the esc key) is cmd+..

This is useful if you're on a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, and you're in an app where the esc has turned into something else (like while playing full-screen video).


there is a workaround for that which actually works pretty awesome. i hope its ok to post the link:
