Part: V Appendixes > DOS Control Keys

DOS Control Keys

DOS provides the following functions, listed in Table D.2, although application programs often prevent them from working. (All are eliminated or changed when Microsoft Windows is active.)

Table D.2. DOS Control Keys and Their Functions
Keystroke Function Description
Ctrl+C Break Stops (exits) a command or software application program. Very useful for halting DOS commands. This DOS-provided Break command is somewhat safer than the Break command provided by the ROM BIOS.
Ctrl+S Pause Pauses the system until the next key is pressed. Identical to the ROM BIOS–provided service.
Ctrl+P Echo to PRN Echoes all characters to the printer (LPT1) as well as to the screen. Press Ctrl+P a second time to turn off.
