How can I exit the MS-DOS editor, the editor which comes up if I type
edit at a Windows prompt? The help available from F1 does not tell me this.
F1 Help file of edit.com did not explain about usage of
Other than doing
Alt+F, X to get
File > Exit command, you can press
Alt key then use the cursor keys to navigate edit.com menu system.
The (possibly) expected function of using the mouse to click on the
File command does not work by default. This is because the DOS Window properties have “Edit Options” enabled for “QuickEdit Mode” and “Insert Mode”. Click on the top left of the DOS Window then “Properties”, and then disable those two “Edit Options”, and you will be able to use the mouse to execute commands on the
edit.com menu bar.
Have you tried File -> Exit (alt+f, x)?
You can exit
EDIT by pressing
Which will perform “File -> Exit -> Confirm”
It is also the same fingering to arpeggiate a major chord on a piano in a triangle-wave fashion. Cheers and much love on this nostalgic post.
