8.2 Window Commands

It can be convenient to view more than one node at a time. To allow this, Info can display more than one window. Each window has its own mode line (see section 8.1 The Mode Line) and history of nodes viewed in that window (see section history-node).

C-x o (next-window)
Select the next window on the screen. Note that the echo area can only be selected if it is already in use, and you have left it temporarily. Normally, `C-x o' simply moves the cursor into the next window on the screen, or if you are already within the last window, into the first window on the screen. Given a numeric argument, `C-x o' moves over that many windows. A negative argument causes `C-x o' to select the previous window on the screen.

M-x prev-window
Select the previous window on the screen. This is identical to `C-x o' with a negative argument.

C-x 2 (split-window)
Split the current window into two windows, both showing the same node. Each window is one half the size of the original window, and the cursor remains in the original window. The variable automatic-tiling can cause all of the windows on the screen to be resized for you automatically, please see section automatic-tiling for more information.

C-x 0 (delete-window)
Delete the current window from the screen. If you have made too many windows and your screen appears cluttered, this is the way to get rid of some of them.

C-x 1 (keep-one-window)
Delete all of the windows excepting the current one.

ESC C-v (scroll-other-window)
Scroll the other window, in the same fashion that `C-v' might scroll the current window. Given a negative argument, scroll the "other" window backward.

C-x ^ (grow-window)
Grow (or shrink) the current window. Given a numeric argument, grow the current window that many lines; with a negative numeric argument, shrink the window instead.

C-x t (tile-windows)
Divide the available screen space among all of the visible windows. Each window is given an equal portion of the screen in which to display its contents. The variable automatic-tiling can cause tile-windows to be called when a window is created or deleted. See section automatic-tiling.
