My trackpad is dead. I need to commit my repository with terminal. I reopen it, but it is still halfway behind a nasty window "None of your preferred networks available".

I am trying Command + W, but it closes the terminal, not the top window. Any suggestions?

  • Can you provide a screenshot of the window in question?

  • Nope :((, it is beyond my Mac keyboard mana Commented Nov 3, 2016 at 18:00
  • @Fyrefly It's the window shown when "Ask to join new networks" is enabled in System Preferences → Network.

    Can you borrow or purchase a USB mouse? I always keep one handy just in case I need it.
