8. Manipulating Multiple Windows

A window is a place to show the text of a node. Windows have a view area where the text of the node is displayed, and an associated mode line, which briefly describes the node being viewed.

GNU Info supports multiple windows appearing in a single screen; each window is separated from the next by its modeline. At any time, there is only one active window, that is, the window in which the cursor appears. There are commands available for creating windows, changing the size of windows, selecting which window is active, and for deleting windows.

8.1 The Mode Line  What appears in the mode line?
8.2 Window Commands  Manipulating windows in Info.
8.3 The Echo Area  Used for displaying errors and reading input.
