Hi I'm sure there is an easier way to do it than the way I do it but I hope this helps anyway and if there is someone will surely say. f pressing the COMMAND key to the left of the space bar and pressing tab to switch between open windows doesn't work I hold down the voiceover keys an press F2 twice to bring up the window chooser and select the dialogue window from there. Hope this helps

Hi. I get this usually from the force quit applications, which, after you force quit, for some reason seems to stay open. Anyway for that, I take two fingers and tap near the left edge of my track pad, near the side. It clics and says applications menu. from there I arrow down, it says system dialog, and I dobule tapp anywhere on the trackpad. I arrow down again to force quit, psuh return. Hope that helps.

Press VO and F2 twice to get a list of windows. The system dialogues should show up in there. HTH
