escape key

The Escape Key (Esc) is a key with which the program or an action can be terminated prematurely. Provided that the corresponding program supports this function.

The Esc key is normally located at the top left of the keyboard. It can be used to cancel rotations and close dialog boxes. To ensure that the program can be continued without problems after a restart, all data and control information is saved when the cancel key is pressed.
