The Escape Key (Esc) is a key with which the program or an action can be terminated prematurely. Provided that the corresponding program supports this function.

The Esc key is usually located in the upper left corner of the keyboard. It can be used to cancel rotations and close dialog boxes. So that the program can be continued without problems after the restart, all data and control information are saved when the cancel key is pressed.
