esc

What the heck does this key do?



I remember a couple of decades ago that if you were stuck on a page of some sort you could press "esc" and ESCAPE. But now, I've never been able to use it for anything. Is it just for looks? Are the keyboard people just keeping it around for posterity? What?

That's all.

Hey, has anyone noticed that my daily 365 pics are getting a little weird? Maybe it's just a phase.

DV!

Escape still works if you want/need to exit a Powerpoint presentation. Some computer video games can be exited that way as well.

I ran across a cartoon on the web the other day - it had the CONTROL button dressed up like a cop, and it was chasing the Escape button!
