Windows – Linuxlike Ctrl-C (KeyboardInterrupt) for the Windows cmd line


I've been forced into using a command line in windows and wondered if there were Linux-like keyboard shortcuts? I googled and didn't find what I was looking for.

Things like ^C, ^Z and such? Thanks all!

Best Solution

Try Ctrl+Break: some programs respond to it instead of Ctrl+C. On some keyboards Ctrl+Break translates to Ctrl+Fn+Pause.

Note also that nothing can cancel synchronous network I/O (such as net view \\invalid) on Windows before Vista.
