Esc key is being wasted

Post by davell » Sat Mar 13, 2004 8:23 pm

My use of the stop function is much less than that of the close function. I realize that Msft has coded the Esc button to = stop, but is it possible to add an option to also close the current
active window.
To me ( I'm right handed), this is the most easily accessible (no
look) button on the keyboard and
could be put to much better use.
Perhaps remap the stop function to the pause/break button. Also, shift+esc would be great for
closing all windows.
Thanks for the time already spent
on the browser.
