That's odd. Does anything happen at all when pressing the middle button? How about the keyboard (F4 by default)? If you get the Dashboard, but nothing on it, there should at least be a + icon in the bottom left corner. Click that, then re-add your widgets. Hopefully your information is still intact.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Sorry for miss understanding. The problem that i am having is my stickies with information on them that i had for year already disappeared from my dashboard. I didn't delete the stickies or touched them. They just simply disappeared.

Again sorry for bad explanation

Take a look at this. It appears that if your notes still exist, you can find them in a plist file in ~/Library/Preferences/. I can't guarantee anything but it's worth a look.

Thank you for input. I appreciate it!

I don't see it in the directory that you told me to look for.
IF i don't see the file at that place does it mean my stickies with my info are gone for good? And also how could they disappear at first place?

Just quick update at the moment i am reading post at this link
Help! My Post-it Notes Have Vanished? - Mac Forums

I found lots of info on the link above. I think my stickies are gone for good and there is no hope.

At least i learned a lesson not to use the stickies anymore no matter how good they appear to be!!!

It's bad that your information disappeared, but I look at those stickies as a way of keeping temporary information before you transfer it some other permanent storage kinda like what the real Post It's are used for..you shouldn't be using those for important information..

Regards
