Window will not close on MacBook Pro

The screen will not close on my MacBook Air. The screen is off to the side not filling up the entire screen. I have no x that is on the screen to close it out as it is "hiding" on the side. I have tried restarting, but still comes up with the screen which is the last screen I was on. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: Screen will not close on MacBook Pro

Also you can try force quitting the application. Click the apple in the upper left corner and choose force quit. You will see a list of all running apps. Close everything except the Finder and your window should be gone.

You can also "scroll through" the list of open apps by tapping command-tab. To close the selected app, tap command-Q.
