I'm using scrapy and just discovered the view command from the shell. It brings up the webpage in a very convenient instance of w3m. From man w3m, I learned that H brings up the help menu, but despite reading through it, I can't find the proper way to exit it.

I can do C-h which takes me back to history, but there must be a right way of exiting the help menu.

  • I don't seem to have w3m installed at the moment.. but have you tried q? – Greg Hewgill Dec 25 '11 at 0:22

    q offers to quit w3m instead. I managed to find an answer I'll add below. – fratrik Dec 25 '11 at 22:19

It turns out B is what you want, which goes back between buffers.


Use Q. It will help you move out the program.
