I start Cygwin and type emacs and there I am in Emacs. The directions say: to exit type C-x C-c where C is the control key -- I am assuming that is the left control key.
So I hold down the left control key and type x. I get a C-x in the lower bottom of the window. I then try C-c which is holding down the left control key and hitting the c key. Nothing. Just a ding.
In fact I cannot exit from Emacs at all. Is there a way of exiting from Emacs which works?
